American tourist killed in Greece

An American tourist named Bakari Henderson was killed in a bar brawl while visiting the Greek island of Zakynthos on Friday, local media reported.

Henderson, 22, was out with his friends when he began fighting with another bar patron. Both men were asked to leave the bar, after which the fight escalated and Henderson was beaten to death by 10 men, some reportedly armed with brass knuckles. Two men have been arrested and charged with homicide, and eight other people remain under investigation.

A recent graduate of the University of Arizona, Henderson was working on a photo shoot while in Greece. "Bakari loved spending time with family and friends, traveling, and meeting new people. He was a big thinker and enjoyed coming up with new business ventures," said a statement from his family. "Bakari was an inspiration to all he met. He loved life and lived it to the fullest."
