TV slap: Greek political debate ends in chaos

A Greek breakfast television debate descended into chaos when a spokesman for far-right party Golden Dawn threw a glass of water over one female politician and slapped another across the face.

The TV show, on private station Antenna, was pulled off air after the incident in which Ilias Kasidiaris drenched female leftist party member Rena Dourou, calling her a "tart".

When Communist party deputy Liana Kanelli intervened on her behalf, throwing a newspaper at Kasidiaris, who called her a "commie", he slapped her around the face.

Kasidiaris was locked in a room, before breaking a door and escaping.

In a statement his party said he had been provoked.
