Two Canadians among those sought by US authorities over attack on protesters

Christy Curtis | 16 June, 2017, 04:50

The DC police are expected to say that seven men are being charged for felonies, and another five for misdemeanors.

Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser condemned the violence strongly on Thursday, saying it violated the constitutional right to peaceful protest.

Erdogan was in the United States at the time for a bilateral meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump.

Turkey on Thursday condemned a decision by US authorities to issue arrest warrants to some members of President Tayyip Erdogan's security detail over a brawl that erupted in Washington last month, saying it "lacked legal basis".

The brawl inflamed existing tensions between the two North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies. USA officials have said law-abiding Americans were affected.

Erdogan's security detail returned with him to Turkey and the United States could seek their extradition or bar them from entering the country. "And the leveling of charges might embolden other countries to ignore similar immunity agreements, putting USA diplomats overseas at risk".

A Washington police spokesman described the assault as a "brutal attack on a peaceful protest" that left 11 people were hurt, nine of them badly enough to receive hospital treatment. Another wrenched a woman's neck and threw her to the ground. Eleven people were injured and nine were hospitalized, as Erdogan watched from his Mercedes-Benz. Two arrests were made at the scene; however those individuals were released because the State Department said they have diplomatic immunity. Narin, from Virginia, faces an aggravated assault charge. Yildirim was charged with two felony counts and one misdemeanor assault count.

Holman told the judge that Yildirim has received death threats because of the case.

The New York Times identified this man in the white shirt as New Jersey resident Eyup Yildirim.

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.

The fracas added to already strained U.S.

Twelve of the people charged are Turkish security officers, and Erdogan is exceedingly unlikely to extradite them to the U.S.to face trial.

"We will defend the First Amendment, and we will make sure our laws are being enforced", Bowser said Thursday.

Erdogan said the protesters were members of an outlawed Kurdish militant group and the USA police failed to act. Police displayed photos at the news conference of those sought, urging the public to help find some still unidentified.

Violence erupted between protesters and the president's security personnel outside the Turkish ambassador's residence during Mr Erdogan's visit.

Upon learning of the charges, Turkey's Foreign Ministry summoned John Bass, the us ambassador to Turkey, to issue a protest.
