Second brawl in under a month in South Africa's parliament

Punches and bottles were thrown in South Africa's parliament as security guards evicted lawmakers from the opposition Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) party.

The brawl happened after the speaker ordered the removal of the left-wing MPs who tried to stop President Jacob Zuma from speaking.

It is the second fistfight in less than a month in South Africa's parliament.

The EFF says he should step down after a court ruled that he violated the constitution by using public money to pay for upgrades to his private home.

Mr Zuma denies any wrongdoing.
