(Newser) – Officials are defending security systems after a gang of bikers fatally beat a man inside Sydney Airport—then fled in taxis, reports the Sydney Morning Herald. "The police can't be everywhere and this could have happened anywhere," said the federal police commissioner. Horrified passengers watched as the 29-year-old man was bludgeoned with metal poles yesterday.

"There were a group of men going at each other with lots of families and children in the area and no one to look after the other passengers," said a witness. The 15-man brawl is linked to an ongoing feud among local biker gangs. Four men have been arrested.
