Enraged TV guests have a fight on air

By Staff

A journalist and a lawyer from Jordan fought on air after arguing about Syrian president Bashar Al Assad during a local TV programme.

Lawyer Saleh Khrais defended Al Assad as “a symbol leading his nation” while well-known journalist Shaker Al Gowhari assailed the Syrian leader.

A YouTube film showed Gowhari then jumped out of his seat, carried a chair and hurled it at Khrais. He tried to attack him again but was stopped by the presenter and another employee from the Jordanian channel.
