Two female MPs brawl in Afghan parliament

Kabul, Afghanistan (CNN) — Two female members of the Afghanistan Parliament got into a physical fight Tuesday following a discussion of rocket attacks from Pakistan.

General Nazifa Zaki, a former army general, threw her shoe at fellow MP Hamida Ahmadzai, video from parliament showed.

The video, posted online by TOLOnews.com, shows Zaki leave her seat to head toward Ahmadzai, who throws a water bottle at Zaki when she gets close.

Zaki punches Ahmadzai, and the two begin to tussle.

Arian Yoon, another female member of parliament, said Zaki punched Ahmadzai in the face.

Other members of parliament quickly broke the fight up.

What began as a discussion took a turn for the worse when one of the coalitions in parliament, including members who are accused of fraud, wanted to summon President Hamid Karzai about the rocket and artillery attacks from Pakistan.

Ahmadzai called for two of the country’s vice presidents to be summoned.

That’s when Zaki attacked, Yoon told CNN.

The Pakistani government has denied responsibility for recent deadly rocket attacks in Afghanistan.

Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari said the attacks were not carried out by the Pakistani army, according to a statement from Karzai’s office following his meeting Zardari.
