State Dept expresses "concern" over Turkish officials' attack on protesters

State Dept expresses

President Erdogan's bodyguards could hear it. It is unclear if they worked for the embassy or were members of the counter-protest.

There are several reasons that's probably not going to happen, but the most persuasive is video that shows Erdogan pulling up outside the Turkish embassy in a Mercedes Benz sedan, moments before the brawl occurred.

Newsham added that nine people were hospitalized following the skirmish, and two men were arrested.

In the video, Erdogan is seen standing beside a black Mercedes sedan while his bodyguards in suit were beating up some of the protesters. "A violent attack on a peaceful demonstration is an affront to D.C. values and our rights as Americans", she said.

The U.S. State Department has also expressed its official concern "in the strongest possible terms".

The D.C. Police Department said in a statement, "We will continue to work with our partners at the Unites States State Department and the United States Secret Service to identify and hold all subject accountable for their involvement in the altercation".

Yesterday, the US State Department said "violence is never an appropriate response to free speech".

Royce's letter states that that bodyguards "viciously beat multiple individuals, throwing them to the ground and kicking them in the head". They "began aggressively provoking Turkish-American citizens who had peacefully assembled to greet the President".

On his return to Ankara, the foreign minister said Turkey had been assured that after the operation in Raqqa, territory seized from the jihadists would be handed back to the local Arab population. "We would just take the step".

"We are facing a picture where terrorist organisations are constantly supported, strengthened and are confronting us".

During his visit to the Turkish embassy residence in Washington DC after the meeting, his supporters clashed with another group who gathered outside the embassy building in order to protest Erdoğan's policies in Turkey.

The statement said that the US communicated its concerns to the Turkish government "in the strongest possible terms".

The US state department said Turkish security guards had been involved in the clash but Turkey blamed the protesters for the disturbance.

"The conduct of Turkish security personnel earlier this week is deeply disturbing", the spokesperson said.

And Erdogan, speaking in Istanbul two days after meeting Trump, said he was putting Washington on notice that his forces won't hesitate to attack USA -backed Kurds if they threaten Turkey.
