Top senator calls for removal of Turkey's US ambassador

Supporters of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey, including his government security forces and several armed individuals, violently charged a group of protesters outside the Turkish ambassador's residence on Tuesday night in what the police characterized as "a brutal attack". Another wrenches a woman's neck and throws her to the ground. Seconds later, a group of men run across the street and start punching and kicking protesters.

The protest turned violent, and nine people were injured.

Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan delivers a statement to reporters alongside U.S President Donald Trump after their meeting at the White House in Washington, U.S. May 16, 2017. Police appeared to struggle to keep the two groups separated.

TURKEY'S rows with its North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies escalated yesterday over United States support for Syrian Kurdish separatists and Germany's use of a key air base. That guard talks to another man who then begins the fight.

"Violence is never an appropriate response to free speech", the State Department said in a statement, promising to scold the Turkish government "in the strongest possible terms".

Politicians weighed in as well. The department says the ambassador met Wednesday with Tom Shannon, the acting deputy secretary of state and highest-ranking career US diplomat. "There is no excuse for this kind of thuggish behavior". But Sen. John McCain of Arizona didn't hold back.

"The violence and injuries were the result of this unpermitted, provocative demonstration", an embassy statement said. He said police were examining video to identify those responsible. Two men were bloodied from head wounds as bystanders assisted dazed protesters. Two men identified as 49-year-old Ayten Necmi of NY and 42-year-old Jalal Kheirabadi of Virginia, all USA residents were arrested as main suspects.

The protesters said they were demonstrating peacefully until Erdogan's guards and supporters suddenly moved toward them. In April, the USA had criticized Turkish airstrikes against Kurdish militants in Syria and Iraq.

Court paperwork spells his name Kheirabaoi, but he said that is incorrect.

-Turkish tensions compounded by a spat over US war strategy against the Islamic State group in Syria.

The YPG's parent organisation the Democratic Union party (PYD) is a sister organisation to Turkey's banned Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK). He said 11 people and one of his officers were injured during the incident, which was partially captured on video by media outlets.

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said McGurk has "the full support and backing" of Trump and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.
