The video footage shows Mr. Amos, in a beige suit and black shirt, cooperating with security guards escorting him out of the venue, but as he reached the center aisle, different men launched themselves at Mr. Amos - hitting him with their fists, Turkish flag poles and books.

When Erdogan visited Washington, D.C., in May, protesters gathered at the ambassador's residence, and the situation devolved into an altercation with the Turkish leader's bodyguards - who were seen on video pushing past D.C. police to attack protesters, nine of whom were left injured.

It did not appear that Turkish security officials were involved, the US Department of State said.

Meghan Bodette, who said she was one the protesters, claimed they wanted "to call attention to the Turkish state's war crimes and human rights abuses against the Kurdish people", both in Turkey and in Syria.

During the meeting Erdogan's speech was interrupted twice by protesters.

Another demonstrator unfurled a banner for a banned Kurdish group and was escorted out.

Pandemonium followed a crowd of security as they barreled toward the doors of the room, according to video taken by a Turkish journalist.

Erdogan said in a PBS interview that he was "very sorry" for the violence in May.

Erdogan, who was in town for the United Nations General Assembly, spoke to the Turkish American National Steering Committee at the Marriott Marquis ballroom in Times Square when six protesters spoke up, the New York Times reports.

It was reported that Erdoğan told American investors at the meeting that Turkey is making necessary adjustments and reforms in line with the ever-changing circumstances.

This is when the guards took action against the protestors.

The White House on Monday announced that the Trump Administration has officially withdrawn its controversial proposal to allow the sale of US semi-automatic handguns to Erdogan's security detail, which, in May attacked peaceful American protesters in Washington.
