CCTV has emerged of a brawl outside a bar in Greece that killed a 22-year-old American tourist. 

The video appeared to show two groups clashing on the street outside of the bar on the island of Zakynthos.

Bakari Henderson, a recent graduate of the University of Arizona, was battered to death in the street after the fight broke out around 3am on Friday. 

The footage, from a camera in a nearby store, shows Mr Henderson running and being pursued by a group of people.

One man tackles him, throwing him onto a parked car before others join in the beating. Some in the group around Mr Henderson eventually manage to stop the others from attacking him.

Pavlos Kolokotsas, the mayor of Zakynthos, told ABC News that both groups involved had been drinking heavily.

One of the dead man’s friends, Sam Hindsman, said Mr Henderson was “such a fun loving person and he’s so easy going.”

“So many people just loved him, so it was hard to believe.”

Five of nine men suspected of the killing were yesterday jailed pending trial. They range in age from 18 to 34 and were expected to be moved from police holding cells to prison by the end of the week. 

A total of nine men – one Greek, seven Serbs and one British citizen of Serb origin who works as a bouncer in Greece – have been charged with intentional homicide. 

The remaining four suspects were due in court today.
