Charlottesville: Trump criticised over response to violence
US President Donald Trump is facing criticism for his response to the violence at a white supremacist rally.
A woman was killed and 19 people injured when a car ploughed into a crowd of counter-protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Mr Trump condemned violence by "many sides" - but stopped short of explicitly condemning the far-right.
Republican Senator Cory Gardner said "Mr. President - we must call evil by its name."
He added: "These were white supremacists and this was domestic terrorism."
His comments were echoed by senior Republican figures.
