Shock over US tourist killed in Greek bar

Texas native Bakari Henderson, 22, was beaten to death after at least 10 people followed him out of a bar after a dispute, police said. Witnesses reportedly told police he angered one of the bouncers when he and his friends tried to take a selfie with a waitress. Eight people have been arrested in connection to the killing, police said. Six Serbian nationals, a 34-year-old Greek and a 32-year-old British national of Serbian descent were among those arrested. The suspects, who face voluntary manslaughter charges, are accused of beating him and leaving him unconscious in the street. Police said Mr Henderson died from severe head injuries after the incident. Mr Henderson's friend, Travis Jenkins, said it was unlike him to get into a street brawl. "Bakari was not one to act aggressively like that," Mr Jenkins told ABC News. "He was always the one who was the peacemaker." "I think everybody feels the same way," said Blake McCray, a family friend. "That everybody just misses Bakari. He was the life of the party." Mr Henderson graduated last month from the University of Arizona with a degree in business finance and entrepreneurship.
