Turkish President Erdogan was in D.C. for a meeting with Trump and his security detail took the opportunity to get into a massive brawl with a handful of Kurdish supporters. The Kurdish supporters were there to protest against Erdogan and the Turkish government's handling of Kurds. Words were exchanged, a small fracas flared up and then was quelled.

In a subsequent video, the security detail has crossed the road and is attacking several demonstrators, including ganging up on people on the ground to get a few kicks in to some heads.

There's a few videos starting to come up now but I can't find one continuous clip that shows the whole thing. This article has a break down of what and why. Newsweek article

Reposts are popping up on YouTube, as well. Here's one clip

Yazidi might sound familiar to some, they are the victims of genocide & sex slavery by ISIS.
