Bank President suspended after brutal public spanking of employees

A video has surfaced online showing staff at a Chinese bank being publicly spanked for poor performance during a training session, sparking outrage.

The video, first posted by the People's Daily, shows a trainer asking eight employees why they did not "exceed themselves" at training.

He then spanks them with what looks like a stick. Reports say he later also cut and shaved their hair.

Two executives at the bank have been suspended.
