Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “‘Long time coming’: Charlottesville removes Robert E. Lee statue” – below is their description.
Nearly a century after it was first erected – and almost four years after it sparked a deadly weekend of violence in the US city of Charlottesville, Virginia – the statue of Robert E Lee has been removed.
The city’s council say it is a step towards racial justice.
Onlookers, including Black Lives Matter supporters, cheered – as the figure of the confederate general was pulled down from its pedestal.
Al Jazeera’s Andy Gallacher reports from the US capital, Washington, DC.
