A woman stripped her alleged love rival and beat her in the street while people looked on and it was captured on video.
The incident took place in Bozhou, east China’s Anhui province.
At least two women joined the attack to punish the woman for supposedly being in an adulterous relationship.

The video has gone viral in China, widely shared on social networking site Weibo.
