Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan watched Tuesday as men believed to be members of his security detail attacked protesters in the nation’s capital.
Moments before his supporters pushed through a police line, an aide leaned over Erdogan, seated in the back seat of a vehicle near the Turkish ambassador's residence.
The aide straightened himself and spoke to another aide, who rushed toward the protesters seconds before the brawl began.
Shortly after, Erdogan exited the vehicle and looked directly toward the melee feet away.
The revelation of Erdogan's proximity to the incident came in a video posted to Facebook on Thursday afternoon by Voice of America's Turkish division.
