Turkish Guards Indicted for Attacking Protesters in D.C.
A grand jury on Tuesday indicted 15 Turkish security guards for allegedly attacking protesters in Washington, D.C., while Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was visiting. The protesters were protesting outside the Turkish ambassador’s house, awaiting Erdogan’s arrival from his meeting with President Donald Trump. The individuals charged could face up to 15 years behind bars. At the time, the U.S. condemned the security officials’ actions, saying, “violence is never an appropriate response to free speech.”
