In Pictures: America reacts to Charlottesville violence
Rallies and vigils were held in many US cities on Sunday (Aug 13) to protest against the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, where a woman opposing a rally by white nationalists was killed. The Unite the Right event, organised by supporters of the so-called "alt-right" movement, was against the planned removal of a statue of Confederate general Robert E. Lee.
