Lebanese politicians come to blows on TV
Wednesday 16 November 2011
Two Lebanese politicians debating unrest in neighbouring Syria exchanged blows on live television, showing the divide between factions over the relationship with Damascus.
The fight broke out during a debate between the anti-Syrian Mustafa Alloush and the head of the Lebanese branch of Syria's ruling Baath party, Fayez Shukur.
Mr Alloush called Syrian President Bashar al-Assad a liar, and the politicians hurled glasses of water at each other. Mr Shukur then picked up a chair and tried to hit Mr Alloush with it.
