GENEVA – Several online outlets today point at a bizarre video shot in the premises of CERN, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research, whose lab in canton Geneva carries out high-energy physics research. The video, which CERN officials say was shot “without official permission or knowledge”, also raises questions of security in the premises late at night.
CERN officials told the AFP, that “IDs are checked systematically at each entry to the site whether it is night or day”, which should facilitate the investigation.
The video shows several people dressed in cloaks and one young woman, dressed in a white gown, laying on her back before she is “seemingly stabbed”.
In the past, Cern has invited artists to perform and work with scientists in art projects; the video is far from being an art project.
Various version of the low-quality spoof video have been posted online.
