A video clip posted on Twitter from Spain shows a uniformed individual (unclear if it is a police officer or private security) beating two women with a truncheon because they are not properly wearing their face masks.
The footage shows two women involved in an altercation with the female officer, who beats them across the arms and upper body.
One of the women appears to have suffered a serious injury to her arm as a result of the blows.
Both women appear to be wearing face masks, without fully covering their mouth and nose, while officer seems to not be wearing a mask at all.
Spain has been one of the most draconian countries in Europe when it comes to the enforcement of coronavirus rules.
Numerous beaches across the country are being patrolled by police surveillance drones to enforce mask wearing and social distancing.
Mainstream media, what is happening in Spain?
