Fight in Béziers ends in tragedy

France 3/Scoop, May 11

A fight occurred between two drunken men leaving a nightclub and three individuals on the street at around 3am on rue de Solferino in Béziers.  It ended badly.

The man who came off worse was a 35 year old from Lot-et-Garonne, who was one of the drunken men leaving the nightclub.

After a severe beating, he was left on the pavement, and died from his injuries an hour later. His accomplice, also under the influence of alcohol, was placed in police custody to sober up. The three men who started the fight had long since left the area, and have not been found.
