#Sona2017 chaos makes headline in UK
Photographs of the Sona clashes and videos of MPs being dragged out ran under headlines describing the punch up.
Photographs of the clashes in the National Assembly and videos of Members of Parliament (MPs) being dragged out ran under headlines describing the punch up.
