Update: “Today, Mayor Bowser issued the following statement regarding the violent confrontation outside of the Turkish ambassador’s house on Tuesday, May 16:

“What we saw yesterday – a violent attack on a peaceful demonstration – is an affront to DC values and our rights as Americans. I strongly condemn these actions and have been briefed by Chief Newsham on our response. The Metropolitan Police Department will continue investigating the incident and will work with federal partners to ensure justice is served.”

Thanks to all who tweeted us.
