Probe after Jordanian politician pulls gun on opponent during TV debate

Published 10/07/2012

A Jordanian politician could face charges of attempted murder after pulling a gun on his opponent in a live TV talk show, a prosecutor said.

Mohammed Shawabka pointed his weapon at Mansour Seif-Eddine Murad after the ex-deputy called him a "mafia thief".

The two men were debating Syria's uprising on the private Jordanian Josat satellite station.

Mr Shawabka accused Mr Murad of being a "spy" for Syrian president Bashar Assad's regime.

He first threw his shoe at Mr Murad and then pulled out a pistol, but no shots were fired.
