Nine people were injured in clashes that took place at the residence of the Turkish Ambassador to the US Serdar Kalyca. On Wednesday, may 17, reports TASS.
Clashes occurred between supporters and opponents of the current authorities in Ankara. The protest was timed to the visit of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Washington. On Tuesday, he met with the President of the United States Donald trump at the White house.
Whose fault the incident occurred, is unclear. Adjacent to the residence area cordoned off by police, the movement of vehicles there are limited.
All the victims were taken to hospitals. Two people were seriously injured.
The Agency notes that the residence of the Turkish Ambassador in the U.S. is located on Sheridan circle at Massachusetts Avenue, which on this piece is called “close the Embassy” because there are many foreign diplomatic missions. The residence is adjacent to the Embassy of Latvia. The Turkish Embassy is nearby, but not connected with the residence.
