Germany meets with detained journalist in Turkey

"The U.S. Department of State is working closely with local authorities concerning this incident", the spokesperson said.

Sen. John McCain of Arizona, the chairman of the Armed Services Committee, expressed outrage Thursday at video that appears to show Erdogan's bodyguards violently breaking up a protest earlier this week outside the Turkish ambassador's residence in Washington. Instead, Erdogan's guards were released under a globally recognized custom under which nations don't arrest or detain visiting heads of state and members of their delegations, said the official, who wasn't authorized to comment publicly on the matter and requested anonymity. "Shouting is heard, and Erdogan's security staff was seen storming the protesters", reported the Daily Caller.

"The Erdogan government must be held to account immediately and apologize for their anti-democratic violence". "Police did not heed Turkish demands to intervene", the news agency said, and Erdogan's security team and Turkish citizens moved in and "dispersed them". "We should throw their ambassador the hell out of the United States of America".

A State Department statement Friday promised a "thorough investigation" to hold those responsible accountable.

Two senators have written a joint letter to the Turkish president in response to the incident that occurred outside of Turkish Ambassador Serdar Kilic's residence in Washington, D.C. A video that surfaced Thursday afternoon shows Erdogan standing by as his guards then attacked the protesters.

Turkey also criticizes the US for supporting the PKK's Syrian offshoot People's Protection Units (YPG), which has soured relations between Ankara and Washington.

It first should be pointed out that the protesters, their right to dissent protected by the U.S. Constitution, needed no permit and were breaking no rules.

In video shot in the midst of the attacks, men in suits can be seen punching and kicking protesters, some of whom are already on the ground.

"People have the right, in our country, to peacefully demonstrate, and they were peacefully demonstrating". After an April referendum granted Erdogan sweeping new powers, Trump called the Turkish leader to extend his congratulations, a move that alarmed human rights advocates who are anxious about the president's continued embrace of leaders of decidedly undemocratic governments.

To Turkey's dismay, President Donald Trump has made a decision to arm and partner Syrian Kurdish militants in the impending fight to retake the key city of Raqqa.

'Last week, I urged the President and the Vice President when I met with them in the White House to raise Pastor Andrew's case with Turkish leaders.

Tensions between Washington and Istanbul are running high after the Trump administration announced plans to arm Kurdish Syrian militants fighting the Islamic State group despite intense opposition from Turkey, which considers the Kurds as terrorists.
