Tur­key slams U.S. over treat­ment of body­guards

The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

Tur­key sum­moned the U.S. am­bas­sador on Mon­day to protest what it called “ag­gres­sive and un­pro­fes­sional ac­tions” by U.S. se­cu­rity per­son­nel against Turk­ish body­guards in Wash­ing­ton dur­ing Pres­i­dent Re­cep Tayyip Er­do­gan’s visit last week. The ac­tion ap­peared to be in re­tal­i­a­tion to calls in the U.S. for strong ac­tion against the Turk­ish se­cu­rity of­fi­cers who were seen hit­ting and kick­ing pro­test­ers out­side the Turk­ish am­bas­sador’s res­i­dence in Wash­ing­ton dur­ing Er­do­gan’s visit. Two Turk­ish body­guards were de­tained, but later set free and re­turned to Tur­key.
