    Are any of these protestors? I noticed that not all are Turkish security and was wondering who among the others was on which side.

      some of the Erdogan supporters were Turkish expats living in States (some even naturalized US citizens of Turkish descent). That’s why there were two arrests and the rest were presumably either visiting as part of the detail or diplomatic staff. If they are visiting they’ll be denied future entry and the diplomatic staff would face expulsion.
