Two of the country's parliamentarians came to blows after tension spilled over during a TV debate


Two politicians in Georgia have come to blows during a live TV debate ahead of the country’s parliamentary elections.

The disagreement began with water throwing before descending into fisticuffs and scuffles.

Zaza Agladze threw a glass of water over his opponent Irakli Glonti from the State For The People Party.

Presenter Maka Razmadze did her best to intervene but eventually even she was forced to admit defeat and leave the set.
