Brawl at the law courts

Members of two families involved in a court case came to blows inside the law courts building early this afternoon, but no one was seriously hurt.

The incident took place at about 12.30 p.m. outside the hall of Magistrate Tonio Micallef Trigona.

People on the scene said they had heard one woman claiming she was hit by another woman, sparking the brawl.

At one time one of the women was heard yelling 'noqtolha, noqtolha' (I will kill her).

Another woman  and two men were also involved.

Some eight policemen intervened to calm the situation and note particulars.
