Bond denied for Charlottesville auto attack suspect James Fields

Identify Woman Dead in Car Attack During Weekend Protests in Water Street, Charlottesville

Activists plot US embassy protest after Virginia death

Meanwhile, the police chief in Charlottesville - under fire for his department's handling of the violence that boiled over during and after Saturday's rally - expressed regrets but defended the performance of his officers.

Video of the incident in Charlottesville circulated on social media, and Ryan Kelly, a photographer for The Daily Progress, snapped an iconic photograph that shows a gray Challenger plowing into a crowd of people, throwing victims into the air.

"Virginia State Police Lieutenant H. Jay Cullen and Trooper-Pilot Berke M.M. Bates were working with the Charlottesville Police and their brothers and sisters in the Virginia State Police to help ensure the safety of the many city residents and visitors who were in Charlottesville yesterday".

The judge normally has someone from the public defender's office available if the defendant has no lawyer. Someone in the office has a relative who was involved in Saturday's protests in Charlottesville.

The next scheduled court hearing is August 25, though Fields' attorney could request a bond hearing before then. He is due to be arraigned in court on Monday. He answered questions from the judge with simple responses of "yes, sir" when asked if he understood the judge.

James Alex Fields, 20, who had traveled from OH to protest with a group of white nationalists on Saturday, was charged with second-degree murder for driving the auto into the crowd.

White nationalists had assembled in Charlottesville to vent their frustration against the city's plans to take down a statue of Confederal Gen. Robert E. Lee.

No more war, urges South Korea president
President Donald Trump warned in a tweet that military solutions were "locked and loaded" should North Korea act unwisely. Dunford was in Seoul speaking to South Korean military officials, including Defence Minister Song Young-moo.

Fields was arrested shortly after the attack. Fields held a black-and-white shield with the organization's insignia.

White House National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster said the attack could be defined as domestic terrorism but legally is a criminal act.

Fields is charged with second-degree murder and other counts after authorities say he drove into the crowd, fatally injuring one woman and hurting 19 others.

As I said on Saturday, we condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence.

"I didn't know it was white supremacists".

Monday afternoon, President Trump called the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis and other white supremacist groups "repugnant," and called for national healing.

Trump was much more direct in his condemnation on Monday. "Trump's not a white supremacist".
