Video: Saudi wedding turns into scuffle

A wedding in Saudi Arabia erupted into a big scuffle following a heated argument between the groom and his uninvited uncle.

A YouTube film published by Sada newspaper showed several men jumped at each other, clenching their fists and using their head covers in the attack.

The paper said the wedding in the Southern town of Baha erupted into pandemonium after scores of guests interfered to end the fight.

The film showed no guns were used although firearms are traditionally part of the wedding ceremonies in the conservative Gulf Kingdom.

Sada said the fight was triggered by a verbal attack by the groom's uncle on his nephews for not inviting him to the wedding, telling them that he is their eldest and closest relative following the death of their father - his brother.
