WATCH: Land dispute sparks massive armed brawl in China

Video footage has emerged of a massive armed battle in Shandong, China sparked by a disagreement over land expropriation issues. Local police confirmed about 100 people were involved in the July 24 brawl.

The footage clearly shows those involved wielding a variety of weapons, including shovels and sticks. Some of them even hurl bricks at each other. Several people were taken to hospital with serious head injuries.

Villagers told local media that the brawl was started by a mob trying to expropriate their land. Police arrested six people and say they are investigating the incident.

Incidents like this are not uncommon in China, where mobs are often hired to force villagers to agree to land deals.
