PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Rhode Island leaders are speaking out against the violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Three people were killed Saturday and dozens were injured as white nationalists protested the city's decision to remove a Confederate monument. A car rammed into a crowd of protesters, killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer, and a state police helicopter crashed into the woods, leaving two troopers onboard dead.

The rally was described as "hate-filled" and "shameful" by Rhode Island's congressional delegation. Gov. Gina Raimondo said on Facebook that "Americans should stand in opposition to hate."

The Providence Journal reports that the president of the Providence branch of the NAACP criticized President Donald Trump's response to the apparent car attack, saying he should have called it "domestic terrorism."

A vigil is planned Sunday evening at the State House.
