Another man launched a megaphone at fellow protesters.

Members of Erdogan’s security force were heavily involved in the ruckus, according to the Daily Mail.

“They think they can engage in the same sort of suppression of protest and free speech that they engage in Turkey,” protester Flint Arthur told CNN.

“They stopped us for a few minutes,” he said. “but we still stayed and continued to protest Erdogan’s tyrannical regime.”

The protest occurred the same day the Turkish president met with President Donald trump at the White House.

Nine people were injured and two arrests were made, according to the Metropolitan police.

Ayten Necmi, 49, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault. A second man, Jalal Kheirabaoi, 42, faces charges of assaulting a police officer, according to the Times.
