Iraq MPsstart to fight

Now Malaki's Dawa and Alawi's Iraqiya have started to thump one another in parliament. Brilliant:

Khaleej Times - 13 June, 2011
Two rival Iraqi lawmakers came to blows on Sunday at a time of rising tension between Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki’s Shiite bloc and a Sunni-backed alliance, a parliamentary source told AFP.
The increasingly frayed ties between the two camps, which finished neck-and-neck in a March 2010 election and are now part of a national unity government, have sparked concern over major issues left unresolved.
The fight started after Kamal Saadi from Maliki’s State of Law alliance beat the Sunni-backed Iraqiya party’s Haidar al-Mulla with his walking stick inside the parliamentary cafe, the source said.
