Two arrests made in Turkish embassy melee case, DC police say

Authorities also charged four other men - two Americans and two Canadians - for their roles in the chaotic skirmish.

As the altercation started, Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Police and U.S. Secret Service Agents were also around.

Turkey summoned the U.S. Ambassador in Ankara, John Bass, to the Foreign Office on Thursday after American authorities issued arrest warrants for President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's bodyguards, the Foreign Ministry said in a statement, APA reports quoting Anadolu agency. Eyup Yildirim, of New Jersey is charged with assault with significant bodily injury, aggravated assault, and misdemeanor assault or threatened assault in a menacing manner.

Twelve of the people charged are Turkish security officers, and Erdogan is exceedingly unlikely to extradite them to the U.S.to face trial. And previous year, the police and members of Mr Erdogan's security team clashed with demonstrators outside the Brookings Institution in Washington.

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert declined to say what actions might be taken, but the USA could seek the extradition of the Turkish suspects or bar them from entering the United States.

Others involved in the brawl left the U.S. prior to the completion of the investigation and before arrest warrants could be obtained for them, a law enforcement official told CNN.

Eleven people were hurt in the fracas, nine of whom needed hospital treatment.

Relations were severely strained even before the melee, which came as Erdogan arrived May 16 at the Turkish ambassador's residence after a White House meeting with President Donald Trump.

The Turkish government agents, joined by some civilian supporters of Erdogan's AK Party, then charge across the street as Washington police officers struggle to hold them back. "And the leveling of charges might embolden other countries to ignore similar immunity agreements, putting US diplomats overseas at risk". The men in suits could be seen repeatedly stomping one woman as she lay curled on a sidewalk. Newsham said Thursday there was no indication the protesters were part of a terrorist group. The attack occurred during Erdogan's visit to Washington to meet with President Trump, who has spoken favorably of Erdogan's increasingly undemocratic government. The victims included Americans, he said at the time, and there was no justification for the attack.
