The spokesman for Greece's far-right Golden Dawn party has assaulted two woman MPs in a live broadcast from a television studio by slapping one and chucking water at another.

Ilias Kasidiaris, who is already facing accusations that he was an accomplice in the mugging of a student, threw his water at Rena Dourou of Syriza (the Coalition of the Radical Left) and then slapped the Communist Party (KKE) member Liana Kanelli three times.
