A disturbing video has circulated online showing scientists from Europe's top physics lab recreating a ceremony that appears to be a "mock human sacrifice". 

Several people in black cloaks are gathered in the main square in front of a statue of the Hindu god Shiva, and includes a "stabbing" of a woman as if in sacrifice.

The video is shot from the perspective of someone who is perhaps looking out a window at the scene. As soon as the "stabbing" happens, the camera operator flees the scene, while muttering several expletives.

According to an article with the guardian​a Cern spokesperson claimed the footage was shot at their facility, but "without official permission or knowledge". The spokesperson claims the event was just a prank that was taken too far, and there  will be an internal investigation into the matter.
