The guards surrounded a middle-aged man who had been kicked to the ground and was kicked repeatedly in the face.

Eleven people were injured, including a police officer, and nine were taken to a hospital, after men in suits attacked the protesters on Embassy Row in Washington, DC.

Washington police called the violence a "brutal attack on peaceful protesters".

"We are protesting (Erdogan's) policies in Turkey, in Syria and in Iraq", said Flint Arthur of Baltimore, Maryland.

"The Turkish-Americans responded in self-defense", the statement read.

In video captured by the Voice of America, a handful of Erdogan's supporters and his security detail rushed the demonstrators and started hitting them. "Luckily there was a man in the vehicle who helped me get into the other side of the auto".

"We are communicating our concern to the Turkish government in the strongest possible terms", said Heather Nauert, a State Department spokeswoman.

"Our president told his counterpart, clearly and plainly, that we would continue combatting YPG", Mr Cavusoglu said.

The State Department condemned the attack Wednesday, and police in the nation's capital said they were working to identify the assailants, some of whom were armed.

"The Secret Service fully respects individuals' First Amendment Right to free speech and the right to peacefully protest", the Secret Service said in a statement.

Metropolitan Police Chief Peter Newsham did not confirm that description during a press conference the following day, saying that his department was "in the preliminary stages" of its investigation. He said police were examining video to identify those responsible.

Two men - 49-year-old Ayten Necmi of NY state and 42-year-old Jalal Kheirabaoi from Virginia - were arrested. Ayten Necmi, 49, of Woodside, New York, was charged with aggravated assault, and Jalal Kheirabaoi, 42, of Fairfax, Virginia, was charged with assault on a police officer. In April, the USA had criticized Turkish airstrikes against Kurdish militants in Syria and Iraq.

"We are facing a picture where terrorist organisations are constantly supported, strengthened and are confronting us".

The YPG is the Syrian branch of the Turkish Kurdish Workers Party, the PKK, a Marxist group that has been trying since 1984 to carve out a separatist state from Turkey.
