 Two Yemeni officials have sparked outrage on social media after a video emerged of them slapping each other at a plush Cairo hotel.

In the CCTV clip, which went viral late on Friday, Mohamed Marem, Yemen’s ambassador to Egypt, could reportedly be seen striking Mohammed Moawadah, an advisor to the Yemeni delegation of the Arab League, before being hit back by the junior official.

The footage, which was said to have been filmed at a unnamed Cairo hotel earlier this month, appeared to show the ambassador and his aide quarrelling before they came to blows.

Social media users said despite striking first, Marem appeared to have come off worse in the brawl when Moawadah's retaliatory slap left the ambassador staggering back and looking for his glasses on the floor.
