ABOVE: Chairs fly, punches are thrown, and police are called after the Nepalese parliament descends into a massive brawl
Opposition politicians in Kathmandu, Nepal, threw chairs and attacked the parliamentary speaker in parliament on Tuesday, the day of a violent general strike.
The opposition was trying to block the government from pushing through a draft of a new constitution.
In the tussle several security guards were injured but the Assembly members suffered only bruises.
The ruling coalition planned to push through the draft on Thursday.
Nepal has been attempting to draft a constitution since electing its first Constituent Assembly in 2008.
