A British tourist ‘had his arm broken’ in a mass brawl at a Turkish hotel, which also left a Russian tourist with a broken nose.
The fight broke out after a British tourist was accused of looking at a Russian man’s girlfriend at the five-star hotel in Muratpasa, in the south-western Antalya Province.
Mobile phone footage captured Monday night’s brawl, which rapidly escalated to involve at least 15 men, in the hotel’s garden area.
Footage shows two groups of men shouting at each other with one apparently telling another to ‘f*** off’.
One of the Russians then allegedly attacks a British tourist before the tussle descends into a mass brawl after the men’s friends, who initially seem to be trying to break up the fight, get pulled into the violence.
