    Background: A United Nations General Assembly debate on the Middle East ended in disarray on Monday (6 December) after a scuffle involving the Saudi Arabian delegate, Mr Jamil Baroody, and Under Secretary-General Constantine Stavropoulos broke out on the floor.

    The argument developed after an address by Israeli Foreign Minister Abba Eban. Mr Baroody then sought to exercise the right of reply but Assembly President Adam Malik said he could not speak until others listed had done so.

    After the rostrum microphone was turned down, Mr Baroody confronted Mr Stavropoulos, who is the official in charge of General Assembly affairs.

    The two men were then seen to push each other violently in the chest until Mr Baroody was led away by his friend, Mauritian Ambassador Mr Radha Krishna Ramphul.
