22-year-old American tourist beaten to death in a bar fight in Greece

A 22-year-old American tourist was beaten to death in a bar fight in Greece, authorities say

Bakari Henderson, a 22-year-old recent graduate of the University of Arizona, was in a bar with friends in Laganas, a tourist village on the island of Zakynthos, when another customer approached him. The confrontation quickly escalated to a fistfight, and the bar's security guard asked the two to leave, according to the state news agency.

The fight continued outside, where more people, including two bar employees, began punching Henderson.

Surveillance videos from nearby shops showed the suspects beating Henderson even after he was unconscious, ANA-MPA reported. Henderson died at a hospital.

From the article seems like a rowdy place. Always have a quick out and a plan to defend yourself in a place like that.

Argument quickly escalated to blows.
Possible escape route to the left of the car was blocked by passersby.

Other news reports brass knuckles that led to the quick death.

If anyone understands Greek, mind summarizing the commentary near the end?

With occasional exceptions, local women are for the locals, not you.
