A punch-up between two rival French rappers that descended into a mass brawl in the departure lounge of Paris Orly airport on Wednesday forced the brief closure of one terminal and caused flight delays.
Some passengers scurried for safety while others took videos on their cell phones as rappers Booba and Kaaris and their minders swung punches and lashed out with kicks and crashed through cosmetics stands in a duty-free shop, videos on social media showed.
A border police spokesman said the two artists had been arrested along with nine others from their entourages.
ADP, which manages Orly, said in a statement on Twitter that the airports terminal one was temporarily shut following a passenger dispute.
Booba, whose name is Elie Yaffa, has been involved in disputes with other singers on the French hip hop scene in the past.
He worked with Kaaris in the early stages of his career - the two collaborated on a song called Kalash in 2012 - before relations soured between the two men.
A spokesman for ADP confirmed that some flights had been delayed as a result of the punch-up.

In addition to McDonald’s, KFC and Disneyland, do the French hate Americans for exporting rap music to their country? Maybe rap is okay if they rap in French and not English or “Franglais.”
“Rappers” - ok, sure
Oh ho ho!
Rappers named Booba and Kaaris...sounds like a couple of Teletubbies.
Those froggy Frenchmen...
Maybe we can export all of our rappers to help clean up the culture a bit.
All cultures, ze are eek-wall, n’est-ce pas?
Quick! think of a way to blame Whitey for this!
I never leave the airport in Paris because the streets are too dangerous.
Now it’s at the airport too?
Feral Frogs — Sacre bleu!
What does rapping in French sound like?
“La mo-fo’in plume de ma mo-fo’in tante est sur la mo-fo’n table, mo’fo!!”
Aren’t french rappers amish?
Who can forget the bloody clashes between the chansonnieres of the '50s and '60s? Serge Gainsbourg and Charles Aznavour? Their body count would make 50 Cent turn into a quarter...
Rap with accordion.
Rap Music, America’s “gift” to the world.
Yes...everyone’s forgot the Paris riots that broke out between devotees of “Je t’aime...moi non plus” and those who favored “Les plaisirs demodes”. Worse than 1968.
