Hundreds of protesters descended upon Charlottesville, Virginia, on August 12, 2017 for a “Unite the Right” rally. 
The rally was dispersed by police minutes after its scheduled start at noon, after clashes between rallygoers and counter-protesters, and after a torchlit pre-rally march Friday night descended into violence.

Depok. Noval Fajar Bakti, the 31-year-old man suspected of having killed a 7-year-old girl in a dispute over a loan with her mother, will face the death penalty, the Bogor Police chief has said.

Adj. Sr. Comr . Suyudi Ario Seto, the chief of Bogor Police, said on Friday (12/02) that the suspect will face murder charges as he had planned to hurt the child and had even bought a knife in preparation.

Noval is believed to have attacked both the girl, Sarah, and her mother, Yunida, in their home in the Taman Lestari housing complex in the Citeureup subdistrict of Bogor last Saturday.

He allegedly told police he had asked Yunida for a loan as he needed money to support his family, but that the woman had asked him to pay her back twice the amount.

As the dispute escalated, Yunida started screaming "thief!" which caused Noval to panic and launch his assault.

The girl died in a nearby hospital while the mother is still being treated for her wounds.
