This shocking image captures the moment a young mother was beaten to death by alleged members of a religious cult that was trying to recruit her.
Wu Ting, 23, is believed to have refused to give her telephone number to members of the All-Powerful Spirit cult moments before she was smashed round the head with a mop.
People watch on helplessly as the attack continues with the young woman lying on the ground as the man who appears to be attacking her is egged on by fellow members of the cult.
Nobody stepped in to help the woman, instead standing around before leaving the McDonald's before standing outside and watching through the window.
The lack of action by other people has shocked many in China where the incident happened.
In a video of the attack a woman can be heard shouting "beat her to death" while someone else says "call the police".
It is alleged that the five other people in the group then joined in the attack, kicking the woman in the head.
They beat her with the mop until the handle broke, leaving the mother of a young son lying in a pool of blood on the floor of the restaurant at Zhaoyuan in the Shandong province, in China’s far east.
