The video shows two girls violently beating a woman – whom is believed to be their teacher. The graphic video surfaced on social media on Friday, and quickly spread like wildfire. Now it’s one of the most viral videos in the world.
The girls – clearly minors – are seen grabbing the purported teacher by the hair and beating her. The “teacher” is seen covering up, and trying to shield her face from the punches.

It’s not clear what punishment the two girls received, or whether the police were called about this incident.

A US woman has been charged with human trafficking in the Philippines after she allegedly attempted to smuggle a newborn baby out of the country.
Jennifer Talbot, 43, was arrested at Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila on Wednesday.
A six-day-old boy was reportedly found in her carry-on bag as she attempted to board a plane to the US.
Authorities allege that Ms Talbot did not declare the baby to immigration officials.
The Philippine National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) alleges that Ms Talbot intended to “conceal and sneak the baby out”.
The baby’s mother and father have been charged under a child protection law, authorities said. The boy has been placed in the custody of social services.
Ms Talbot, from Ohio, was not able to provide a boarding pass or any documentation for the baby, the agency said.
Wearing an orange shirt and in handcuffs, Ms Talbot attended a news conference on Thursday, when the charges against her were announced. She made no comment.
If found guilty, she could face life in prison, Manuel Dimaano, head of the NBI’s airport division, told reporters.
