(Reuters) – At least one person was killed and 34 others injured in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday when white nationalists protesting plans to remove the statue of a Confederate general clashed with counter-demonstrators and a car plowed into a crowd, officials said. The clashes prompted the governor to declare an emergency and halt the rally, and President Donald Trump condemned the violence. “I am heartbroken that a life has been lost here,” Charlottesville Mayor Mike Singer said on his Twitter feed.
