And people say our politics are dirty...

There was a brawl in the Ukranian parliament house. It included egging the Speaker, fisticuffs, and smokebombs. There wasn't any formal dueling, though.

Chaos has erupted in the Ukrainian parliament during a debate over the extension of the lease on a Russian naval base in Ukraine.
...Opposition MPs hurled eggs at the speaker, Volodymyr Lytvyn, who had to be protected by two aides holding black umbrellas.
Deputies were seen throwing punches on the floor of the chamber, and covering their faces with handkerchiefs to protect themselves from the smoke.


The whole article and video of the brawl is here.

Also, have you read about the protests in favor of secularism in Lebanon? I didn't realize that there are eighteen separate legal systems there. article here
