WASHINGTON - In a big fight around the visit of Turkish President Erdogan to Washington, nine people have been injured. According to eyewitnesses, Erdogan's personal security officers attacked protesters.

Video shows show how the men in packs outside the house of the Turkish ambassador beat and kick protesters. Even if their victims fall to the ground they do not stop. According to local media, Erdogan himself was in residence at that time.

Earlier this day, Erdogan met President Trump in the White House. There they also spoke of the American support for Kurdish militia in Syria, where Turkey is not happy. The protesters carried a flag of the Kurdish party PYD.
