Violent doormen are abusing their power and targeting holidaying Britons, tourists have suggested, after a British man was allegedly beaten to death by doormen in Cyprus.
Huseyin Mavideniz, 29, was attacked in the early hours of Thursday outside a club in Iskele, northern Cyprus.
He was allegedly punched in the head by club security and allegedly stomped on the head by one of the bouncers as he lay unconscious on the pavement, according to News from Northern Cyprus.
The British tourist was rushed to Famagusta State Hospital and pronounced dead on arrival.
The tragedy is the latest in a series of violent beatings and wanton attacks on British tourists in popular summer destinations.
Huseyin Mavideniz, 29, died after being attacked early Thursday morning outside a club in Iskele, northern Cyprus.
An 18-year-old Briton was cornered and beaten by bouncers in Zakynthos last month.
Last month, 18-year-old James Taylor was held in a headlock by four bouncers at the CherryBay nightclub in Laganas, on the Greek island of Zakynthos.
Shocking footage showed them taking turns punching, kicking and elbowing him in the face and body, before kneeing him in the face.
James, from Middlesbrough, told MailOnline he suffered two black eyes, a swollen jaw, blows to the head, a cracked lip and a cut knee.
The teenager revealed that the attack occurred because he climbed on a chair to take a selfie with his friends before dancing on it for ten seconds. A bouncer had tried to grab James’s arm to pull him down from the chair, but when James jerked back, the club employee disappeared.
“The goalie came back ten seconds later with the rest of the goalies that were on the video and they took me outside and started beating me,” James said. ‘That’s all it took, something as small as standing on a chair.’
His ‘devastated’ mother, Michelle Taylor, 55, has warned other parents that what happened to James could happen to their children.
“I want to get this message across that this is unacceptable and that this is happening to our children,” Michelle told MailOnline. “I am a mother and all mothers will feel this if this happens to their child when they go on vacation.
‘You shouldn’t have to worry about whether the gorillas might hit them.’
Harrowing footage shows three goalies holding 18-year-old James Taylor in a headlock while a fourth hits him with a series of devastating blows.
James, from Middlesbrough, told MailOnline he suffered two black eyes, a swollen jaw, blows to the head, a broken lip and a cut knee after being attacked by four goalies in Zakynthos.

The island of Zakynthos, also known as Zante, is known as a hotspot for janitor violence.
Shortly after MailOnline revealed what happened to James, a mother said her 19-year-old son saw gloved bouncers beating British teenagers “all day, every day” on Zante.
Emma, who is not her real name, told MailOnline: ‘I wouldn’t go there. There is too much crime and the problem is that the crime is not exposed and prosecuted. I didn’t realize how bad it was in there. My son had a horrible vacation.
His son said he witnessed gorillas attack British teenagers in Laganas and “beat them to death”.
Charlie, who is not his real name, said he was on a week-long holiday in Zante in July and saw five teenagers being beaten by bouncers in Laganas.
“It’s not just a bump,” Charlie told MailOnline. ‘They’re getting beat up. The goalies wear gloves, they are punched, kneed and kicked.
‘And even if they’re on the ground, they’re still going to get kicked. It’s really bad, I’m afraid of them.
Charlie said his gut told him he needed to jump in and help the teen, but points out that it’s not just a bouncer attacking them.
‘When a goalie starts beating one of these kids, another four would come out of nowhere and start kicking and kneeing them. This isn’t just a few punches, this is a beating. And if you get involved, you’ll get beat up too.
A group of British women were violently ejected from a Marbella nightclub and thrown to the ground by violent bouncers
In one part of the video, a bouncer walks up behind a girl and violently slaps her on the side of the head.
And the violence is not just limited to men.
Shocking footage from the popular Spanish seaside resort of Marbella last year showed a group of British women being slapped and thrown to the ground by aggressive bouncers.
Revelers were standing outside the Lemmon nightclub before the ugly scenes broke out in front of a crowd of onlookers.
A bouncer is seen pushing the women away, forcing them to hastily rearrange their clothing to avoid it.
The same bouncer returns and knocks a woman in a pink dress to the ground before picking up her friend and pulling her away from the bar.
One of the group is heard yelling at the gorillas: ‘What the hell are they doing?’
Moments later, another member of the bar staff angrily slaps the protester, before the first bouncer throws the woman in the pink dress to the ground a second time.
Then one of the bouncers removes his belt in anger and furiously slams it against a metal pole.
He holds it over his head threatening to beat up the women until one of his colleagues intervenes.
