Journalists destroy TV set during on-air brawl

Two Jordanian journalists got into a fight on a live television show and wrecked its set.

Shaker al Johari and Mohammed al Jayousi were appearing as guests on a show called Between Opposing Opinions when the discussion became heated.

Al Jayousi accused al Johari of supporting the Syrian revolution - and he was in turn accused of backing Bashar al Assad's regime in exchange for money.

The pair then jumped up out of their seats and started shoving the desk in front of them at each other.

The show's presenter Zuhair al Azza tried to calm the pair down before al Johari kicked out at his opponent and was pulled away from the set by production staff.

No action was taken against the pair.
