Fight at Turkey’s parliament



Ankara: Ruling party lawmakers, right, and the members of the main opposition brawl in Turkey’s parliament during a debate over a corruption scandal that has ensnared Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s government, in Ankara, Turkey, Thursday, Jan. 23, 2014. One opposition party legislator was hospitalized after being punched in the face. The scuffles erupted Thursday as parliament prepared to resume debate on a much-criticized draft bill that would tighten the government’s control over the judiciary as it fights a corruption probe that has become one of the most serious threats to its decade in power.
