    Default each other's throat/throats

    PETALING JAYA: In just two weeks the DAP spat that was presumed dead and buried has resurrected to draw its proponents closer in dispute.

    DAP national chairman, Karpal Singh, and Penang deputy chief minister, P Ramasamy, first lunged at each other’s throats after the former branded the latter a “warlord” prompting the Ramasamy to call him a “godfather”.

    Is 'throats' correct? I think it should be 'throat'.

    Thanks.
