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. Anti-racism protesters had also gathered in a show of resistance. The confrontation soon turned violent, leading to a car ploughing into a crowd of counter-protesters, killing 32-year-old legal assistant Heather Heyer and injuring 19 others.
