NEW TONIGHT — A TENSE STANDOFF AT THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA IN CHAPEL HILL.

PROTESTERS CHANTING FOR THE REMOVAL OF A CONFEDERATE STATUE.

SEVERAL HUNDRED DEMONSTRATORS DEMANDING THE STATUE BE REMOVED FROM CAMPUS — MANY SEEN CARRYING BANNERS, MARCHING THROUGH THE STREETS.

U-N-C SAYS THEY WANT TO REMOVE THE MONUMENT, BUT THEY’RE RESTRICTED FROM DOING SO BY STATE LAW.

POLICE WATCH FROM BEHIND TEMPORARY METAL BARRIERS CIRCLING THE STATUE KNOWN AS THE CONFEDERATE SOLDIER SILENT SAM.

THE STATUE STANDS IN HONOR OF STUDENTS WHO DIED IN THE CIVIL WAR.

AT LEAST ONE PROTESTER HAS BEEN HAULED AWAY BY OFFICERS.

DEMONSTRATORS RESPONDED BY CHANTING FOR HIS RELEASE.
