Six Serbian citizens have been arrested in Greece in the investigation into the killing of a Texas man on the island of Zakynthos.

Serbia's foreign ministry said that the detained Serbs were to appear before a judge.

The family of Bakari Henderson, 22, of Austin, identified him as the victim. His family said Mr Henderson was in Greece working on a photo shoot to launch a clothing line. He graduated from the University of Arizona in May with a business degree.

"Bakari loved spending time with family and friends, travelling and meeting new people," a family statement said, according to the Austin American-Statesman.

"He was a big thinker and enjoyed coming up with new business ventures."

Greek police say the victim was beaten to death early on Friday at a bar in Lagana. Officials have not released a possible motive for the attack.

On Friday a 34-year-old Greek and a 32-year-old British man of Serbian origin were arrested.
