Wedding feud ends in four-hour street battle

6:55 am on 12 April 2016

A feud between rival families holding weddings on the same day in a southern Chinese village has erupted into a four-hour street battle.

The violence broke out when one wedding procession tried to pass under a decorative archway constructed for the other family's wedding.

The two families and their guests fought with knives and improvised explosives made out of fireworks, until police arrived.
