- Turkish Guards to Be Charged in Washington Embassy Protests – Peter Hermann
D.C. authorities are to announce criminal charges Thursday against 12 members of Turkish President Erdogan’s security detail who authorities say attacked protesters outside the ambassador’s residence last month in Washington. Police officials say arrest warrants have been issued and that the suspects, all believed to be in Turkey, are now wanted in the U.S.
On May 26, the New York Times published a video-graphic tracking 24 Erdogan supporters during the fight, including 10 it identified as members of the president’s formal security team and 6 dressed in khaki that were Turkish guards. (Washington Post)
