Beijing: Nine people have been arrested in China after a video went viral of a brutal attack by a group of men on women in the city of Tangshan.

The video has prompted outrage on social media and re-ignited debate about gender violence in China.

According to a BBC report, the incident began when a man put his hand on a woman's back in a restaurant and she pushed him away.

The man is seen striking her before others drag her outside and continue attacking as she lies on the floor.

The group of men are also seen attacking her dining partners.

The video quickly went viral on China’s internet on Saturday taking up the top six places of Weibo's most-discussed topics.

Two of the women were admitted to hospital and were in a "stable condition and not in mortal danger", while two others sustained minor injuries, the report quoted officials as saying.

Police in Tangshan, in northern Hebei province, said they had arrested nine people on suspicion of violent assault and "provoking trouble".
