Brawl erupts in South Korean parliament

South Korean opposition politicians have clashed with security guards who stormed a sit-in protest in parliament.

The Democratic Party had been staging a blockade to try and stop Conservatives from passing dozens of measures before the session ended.

A large scuffle broke out, resulting in some ministers and guards being treated in hospital for minor injuries.
