MP kicks pregnant Woman MP in stomach during a budget debate, sentenced to six months in jail with a fine.

Two MPs in Senegal have been sentenced to six months in jail after kicking a pregnant colleague in the stomach and slapping her during a budget debate in parliament.

The two opposition legislators, Mamadou Niang and Massata Samb were ordered by the judge to pay Ms Ndiaye five million CFA francs ($8,100; £6,750) in compensation.


Ms Ndiaye, a member of the ruling Benno Bokk Yakaar coalition, fainted in parliament after the attack and there were fears that she would lose the baby.

In part of the video, one MP is seen advancing where Ms Ndiaye is and slapping her. The angry woman moves toward him and tries to throw a chair to him but is instantly kicked in the stomach, loses balance and falls.
