Lin Yao Li was mobbed by four women as she walked down a street in Puyang, in eastern China’s Henan Province, stripped naked and beaten senselessly, as passers-by looked on passively and the police never came. Her crime: sleeping with another woman’s husband.
The 38-year-old woman was kicked in the groin and breasts as she screamed in agony. Onlookers explained that what was taking place was an “argument of the heart” and the victim didn’t deserve any help because she was an adulteress. This was only the latest in a series of similar attacks in China, in which such humiliation is found acceptable.
Jun Feng, a local man of 30, helped the woman after seeing her lying on the ground after the attackers had left. He told local TV:
This type of thing is becoming quite normal. Angry wives and girlfriends get their revenge on their cheating men by attacking the other woman. People don’t tend to get involved because they see it as being an argument of the heart.
The woman was later taken to a hospital to be treated for cuts, severe bruises and shock after she begged for someone to call an ambulance. (Please be advised that the images have been removed due to reader complaints about violence.)
