Senegalese Parliaments Members arrested

Two opposition Senegalese Members of Parliaments have been arrested for alleged assault of their pregnant colleague earlier this month.

The action follows chaos that erupted during a budget debate in parliament, in scenes that were televised.

The video of the fight was shared widely on social media.

Mr. Massata Samb is said to have slapped the female MP, Amy Ndiaye Gniby, after she scoffed at him during the debate.

She threw a chair at him before another MP, Mamadou Niang, kicked her in the stomach after she was pushed to the ground.
