    An MP tried to shoot his colleague after a row in Jordan's parliament.

    Talal al-Sharif fired an AK-47 at fellow-MP Qusay Dmeisi, but he missed and Dmeisi escaped unharmed.

    The two had earlier had a fierce parliamentary exchange.

    Afterwards al-Sharif went outside to fetch his assault rifle.

    He was stopped by guards as he returned to the parliament, forcing him to fire from the hallway.
