3 arrested at gathering denouncing Confederate torch protest

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Police say three people were arrested near a statue of Gen. Robert E. Lee in Virginia after hundreds of community members gathered to denounce the previous night's protest by torch-carrying white nationalists.

Sunday's candlelit gathering in Charlottesville was held in response to the smaller demonstration led Saturday by white nationalist Richard Spencer. He wants authorities to block the Confederate statue's planned removal.
