Controversial MP George Galloway has been released from hospital after he was battered and bruised in a street attack, police have said.
The pro-Palestine MP suffered a suspected broken jaw and rib as well as facial bruising when a man leapt at him and punched him after shouting about the Holocaust, his spokesman said.
A 39-year-old man arrested shortly afterwards on suspicion of assault occasioning actual bodily harm remained in police custody, a Metropolitan Police spokesman said.
Controversial Bradford West MP George Galloway has been taken to hospital with a suspected broken jaw after he was attacked in the street.
The Respect MP, who also suffered a suspected broken rib and severe bruising to his face and head, was posing for pictures with people in Golborne Road, Notting Hill, west London, last night, when a man shouted a comment about the Holocaust and allegedly attacked him. Police were quickly on the scene and made an arrest.
Mr Galloway was taken to St Mary's Hospital, Paddington, where he remained overnight.
His spokesman said: "George was posing for pictures with people and this guy just attacked him, leapt on him and started punching him.
"It appears to be connected with his comments about Israel because the guy was shouting about the Holocaust."
Mr Galloway was interviewed earlier this month by West Yorkshire Police following a speech in Leeds in which he claimed Bradford was an Israeli-free area.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: "Police were called at approximately 1940 hours to Golborne Road, W10, after a man was assaulted in the street.
"Officers attended. The suspect was found a short time later and stopped. He was arrested on suspicion of ABH (actual bodily harm) and taken to the south London police station where he remains."

The atrocities in Syria are still ongoing with civilians being killed on a daily basis. Humanitarian crises are on the rise and the number of homeless, displaced and refugees is on the increase, with no international will to help. Thousands of children are lacking the most essential means of living, not to mention adults and the elderly.

Bradford City boss Phil Parkinson says he hopes last night's victory over Leeds can kick start a successful season for his team.
The Bantams were beaten finalists in the same competition two seasons ago and went on to secure promotion from League Two.
Manager Phil Parkinson believes the victory against Leeds can be the platform for another successful season.
– Phil Parkinson, Bradford manager
We went up against a very good Leeds side, there's no doubt about that. I've watched their games this season and they have some very good players.
One or two people made us favourites going into the game but it was always going to be tough against higher opposition, and we handled ourselves very well.
We've got some very good players here and I'm glad that they were able to sample the sort of atmosphere those fans can generate here when we play in the manner that we did. I was delighted for everyone.

I am looking forward to working with the other members of the Diocesan team to build up the life of our churches both numerically and spiritually and to contributing to the life of the rich and diverse community in West Yorkshire
– Revd Toby Howarth
It is a great joy to have been appointed as the new Area Bishop of Bradford. The role has no shortage of opportunities and challenges. I am very much looking forward to working with clergy, congregations and ecumenical partners in the diversity of the city itself, the surrounding towns and rural areas. I am also looking forward to engaging with the communities of which our churches are a part, and building relationships with those involved in the range of civic, statutory and community organisations which make up this vibrant metropolitan district.
