Article 90 Commission report triggers scuffle in Iran's Parliament

A report by the Parliamanet (Majlis) Article 90 Commission on a complaint by Ebrahim Yazdi and several other members of the so-called "religious-nationalist" group on Tuesday triggered a scuffle at the chamber, IRNA reported from Tehran.

The report that was being read by Hossein Ansari-Rad, the chairman of the commission, drew angry protests by deputies from the Parliament's minority faction.

Meanwhile, several members of the fraction rushed to the podium and tore up the report after taking it from Ansari-Rad.

Still, Parliament Vice Speaker Mohammad-Reza Khatami urged Ansari-Rad to go on reading another copy of the report.
