The FBI says it has set up a tip line for the public to submit photos, videos and other information regarding the deadly white nationalist rally in Charlottesville.

The FBI said Wednesday that it was setting up the tip line due to the volume of information already coming in from the public.

The Department of Justice announced earlier this week that it was opening a civil rights investigation into Saturday's rally, in which one woman was killed after a car plowed into a group of people protesting the rally.
