Charlottesville: Confederate general Robert E Lee's descendants condemn white supremacists
Descendants of confederate leader Robert E Lee have denounced the white nationalist groups involved in the deadly violence in Charlottesville last weekend that left three dead.

An outnumbered police officer shot dead four of the five terrorists who attacked the seaside city of Cambrils last night, saving his injured partner?s life, according to a dramatic account of the shootout. The officers were carrying out a routine check at a roundabout near the seafront of Cambrils when the terrorists launched their attack, which, it was confirmed today, killed one woman.
