Tehran, Oct. 21 – A fist-fight broke out yesterday between a current and a former member of Iran’s parliament (Majlis), ILNA news agency reported. Mayhem prevailed in the Majlis building as deputies, staff members and journalists crowded the corridor where the fighting was taking place.

Mohammad-Ali Moqanian, member of the current seventh Majlis had originally requested that Majlis security guards refuse entry to Mohammad Rezai. Eye-witnesses reported that once Moqanian saw Reza’i in the Majlis corridor, he yelled out and ran towards the former deputy, repeatedly striking him.

Deputies who know the two men said Moqanian despised Rezai’s constant protests that he had won the February 2004 election only through rigging. The two men intensely disliked each other, the deputies said.
