Top South Korean officials held an urgent meeting Tuesday to tackle increasing peer violence among teenagers after video footage of a cruel beating recently triggered public outrage.

Education Minister Kim Sang-gon hosted the meeting that involved top officials from the fields of justice, culture, youth, police and broadcasting. Kim doubles as deputy prime minister for social affairs.

Juvenile crimes have surfaced as a pressing issue since video footage of a middle school girl bleeding profusely after being attacked by a group of her peers in the southern city of Busan went viral early this month.
