Venezuelan politician assaults reporter on live TV

An on-air confrontation, in which a Venezuelan politician slapped a journalist, has sparked debate about issues of free speech.

Congresswoman Iris Varela stormed onto the set of Gustavo Azocar’s morning programme on Tuesday in the southwestern state of Tachira, shouting: “I’m demanding a right of reply from this man who has offended me all the time on this programme.”

Mrs Varela slapped Mr Azocar in the face several times – breaking his glasses – and then hit him with the microphone, accusing him of slander after he wrote about the death of her infant son years ago.
