Erdoğan fans, security staff beat up protesters during USA speech

Erdogan attends a ceremony in Istanbul Turkey

A scuffle between protesters and attendees erupted in the ballroom of a NY hotel where Erdogan was speaking after a man yelled "You're a terrorist".

Video from the protest, which occurred while Erdogan was visiting the United States, showed Turkish security guards and Erdogan supporters attacking a group of protesters, in some cases punching and repeatedly kicking protesters lying on the ground.

Today's skirmish marks the second time this year that the Turkish president's bodyguards have gotten physical on United States soil. Mr. Amos said they had planned to stand up at intervals to make sure they got their message across.

There were no injuries and no arrests were made, Officer Tiffany Phillips of the New York Police Department said.

Erdogan was in the city for the U.N. General Assembly this week and addressing the Turkish American National Steeting Committee (TASC) at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square.

Nottingham Forest predicated lineup against Chelsea in EFL Cup
Two of the young players likely to be given an opportunity against Forest , perhaps from the start, are Kenedy and Charly Musonda. A prospective late loan move to Newcastle United was blocked due to Chelsea's failure to secure competition for Marcos Alonso.

On 16 May, Turkish and Kurdish protesters clashed outside the Turkish embassy in Washington as Erdogan met with U.S. president Donald Trump. The demonstrators can be seen being pummeled by punches as they attempt to leave. The last time this happened was at a May demonstration outside the Turkish embassy in Washington, D.C. Nine people were injured, and in August, a Washington, D.C., grand jury returned indictments against 15 Turkish security officials and four others.

Erdoğan also said the United States should extradite US-based cleric Fethullah Gülen, widely believed of orchestrating a failed coup in Turkey.

The "de-escalation" zones, agreed by Turkey, Russia and Iran, would be further discussed in talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin during his trip to Ankara next week, Erdogan said in an interview with Reuters while he was in NY for the annual United Nations General Assembly, Hurriyet Daily reported. He also noted that they have provided investors with various incentives and facilities by issuing a production reform package a few months ago.

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan met with close to 70 people, including senior representatives of some global companies and the USA community, while in the country.
