A video circulating on social media has been viewed hundreds of thousands of times alongside claims it shows politicians from two Pakistani political parties brawling on a television show. However, the claim is misleading; the video actually shows a 2016 debate aired on an Afghan TV channel during which guests clashed over a potential peace deal between the local government and a militant group. AFP found no evidence that the guests were Pakistani politicians.
