BBC: US Congress calls for charges over Turkey embassy brawl
The Congress has called for criminal charges against those involved in a brawl outside the Turkish ambassador's residence in Washington DC last month.
Its resolution laid the blame at the door of bodyguards working for Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, saying they had beaten up Kurdish protesters.
The Turkish embassy previously said the demonstrators had aggressively provoked Turkish-Americans gathering to greet the president, who was visiting the US.
Eleven people were injured.
Videos of the incident appear to show Turkish security officials punching and kicking unarmed Kurdish demonstrators.
