Georgian politicians fight live on TV

In Georgia, a political TV debate on the crisis in the country descended first into a water fight and then fisticuffs.

The scandal started when pro-presidential MP Giorgy Kandelaki interrupted opposition leader Koki Guntsadze.

Guntsadze responded by throwing water at Kandelaki and, when the government representative tried to retaliate, the opposition leader slapped him.

The host had to interrupt the show and when it resumed, only the MP was left in the studio.
