Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan condemned Thursday a decision by US authorities to issue arrest warrants for 12 members of his security detail, accused of assaulting protesters during a brawl in Washington.

"We will fight politically and judicially" against the warrants, Erdogan said in a speech in Ankara, accusing US police of allowing "terrorists" to demonstrate against him when he visited the White House last month.
