U.S. releases 2 Turkish bodyguards after violence

ISTANBUL (AP) - Turkey's leader told Donald Trump that his country will keep on fighting Syrian Kurdish militants even though they are a key USA ally against the Islamic State group, Turkey's foreign minister said Thursday, adding that a top US envoy should be fired for backing the Kurds.

Erdogan had been in Washington to visit with Presidnet Donald Trump and protesters gathered outside of the Turkish ambassador's residence in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, said The Guardian.

A firebrand United States senator has advocated for Turkey's Ambassador Serdar Kilic's removal of diplomatic credentials after what he called "thuggish" clashes in front of the Turkish embassy in the U.S. capital.

McCain added: "It should have repercussions, including identifying these people and bringing charges against them".

Senators Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and John McCain, R-Arizona, sent a sharply worded letter to Erdogan on Thursday that demanded he punish his bodyguards and noted that it reflected his government's oppressive tactics. Later it was reported that Recep Tayyip Erdogan's security detail were the attackers of the peaceful protest. "We are communicating our concern to the Turkish government in the strongest possible terms".

The United States sees YPG as the most effective force on the ground in the fight against IS group.

The State Department condemned the attack Wednesday, and police in the nation's capital said they were working to identify the assailants, some of whom were armed.

Nine were hurt and two Kurdish protesters were arrested, police said on Wednesday.

"That's not something that we tolerate here in Washington, D.C.", he said. "And this kind of thing can not go unresponded to diplomatically". "They stopped us for a few minutes ... but we still stayed and continued to protest Erdogan's tyrannical regime".

"What we saw yesterday - a violent attack on a peaceful demonstration - is an affront to DC values and our rights as Americans".

Erdogan had just met at the White House with President Trump. "Someone was beating me in the head nonstop, and I thought, 'Okay, I'm on the ground already, what is the objective to beat me?"

The U.S. says there's an ongoing investigation that will allow the U.S.

A senior Republican senator is calling for Turkey's ambassador to be thrown out of the country in response to violence involving members of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's (REH'-jehp TY'-ihp UR'-doh-wahns) security detail.
