A display in the West Virginia statehouse equating Rep. Ilhan Omar to al-Qaida terrorists behind the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, sparked a confrontation between Republican and Democratic lawmakers on Friday, according to NBC News.

One person was physically injured and another resigned as a result of the incident that centered on the freshman Minnesota Democrat, NBC reported.

An image of the poster that caused the confrontation was shared on social media by Democratic Del. Mike Pushkin. It shows an image of the World Trade Center just after terrorists hit the second tower with a civilian airliner.
