Turkey Demands US Oust 'Pro-Kurd' Envoy McGurk

Germany's Foreign Ministry says a diplomat has been able to meet with a German-Turkish journalist imprisoned in the Istanbul area but there's still no information about a second German journalist in custody in Turkey.

Audiovisual analysis of footage recorded at the Turkish embassy on Tuesday sheds light on the verbal commands given by Turkey's president prior to his bodyguards' attack on a group of Kurdish protesters.

The Turkish Embassy in the USA blamed the violence on the protesters, who included Kurds, a minority group with tensions with the Turkish government.

"McGurk is definitely giving clear support to the PKK and YPG", Cavusoglu was quoted as saying.

The skirmish came after President Donald Trump had welcomed Erdogan to the White House on Tuesday and praised him as a stalwart ally in the battle against Islamic extremism, ignoring Erdogan's authoritarian crackdown on his own people and recent tensions between the United States and Turkey over the military campaign against the Islamic State group.

"It is absolutely unacceptable to take the YPG-PYD into consideration as partners in the region, and it's going against a global agreement we reached", Erdogan said in Washington, referring to the Kurdish Democratic Union Party, whose armed wing is the YPG. Seconds later, men in suits working in some capacity for the Turkish government go after the protesters.

In the video, Erdo─čan can be seen speaking to his security detail as a brawl erupts between his bodyguards and demonstrators.

The official also confirmed that two members of Erdogan's security detail "were briefly detained during the altercations and subsequently released" and returned to Turkey with Erdogan.

Donald Trump says looks forward to working with France's Macron
Jeddah - Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman congratulated Emmanuel Macron on his election as president of France. Macron is a keen advocate of the European Union and the euro currency, while Le Pen has proposed taking France out of both.

"We should throw their ambassador the hell out of the United States of America", McCain told MSNBC's Morning Joe broadcast Thursday.

The State Department said Wednesday that "violence is never an appropriate response to free speech, and we support the rights of people everywhere to free expression and peaceful protest".

While the United States has repeatedly asserted that there is no evidence linking Gulen to the coup attempt, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has raided Hizmet charter schools for information pertaining to accusations of misuse of taxpayer funding. "This isn't Turkey; this isn't a third-world country; and this kind of thing can not go un-responded to diplomatically".

"The actions seen outside the Turkish Embassy yesterday in Washington, D.C. stand in contrast to the First Amendment rights and principles we work tirelessly to protect each and every day", the police statement said.

The US agrees with Turkey in designating the PKK as a terrorist organization, but rejects the idea that Kurdish forces in Syria or Iraq should be treated in the same fashion.

Washington's Metropolitan Police Department said it had arrested two USA residents, Ayten Necmi, 49, and Jalal Kheirabadi, 42, over the incident.

Before it begins, a guard bends to speak to the Turkish president.
