South Korean MPs flex political muscle

Brawls between fellow legislators leads to parliament debating new law aimed at curbing the violence.

    Elected representatives across the world love to flex their political muscle.

    But in South Korea, politicians do so literally, with physical altercations breaking out in official meetings and clashes in parliament sometimes resulting in injuries.

    These brawls have given the country's politicians such a bad image that parliament is now debating new legislation aimed at curbing the violence.
