Two Australian holidaymakers were brutally beaten with bats and barstools by a wild mob of men after an alleged altercation outside a Bali nightclub over a motorbike entrance.
Milard Said, 32, and Maroun Mardini, 39, who are believed to live in Sydney, were leaving the Atlas Super Club in North Kuta, in the south of the Indonesian party island, at around 10.15pm on Monday when they got into a heated exchange with the club’s security .
Shocking footage of the ensuing brawl shows the two friends being beaten by a group of about a dozen men with metal bars, bats and what looks like the leg of a barstool.
Screams like “I’m destroying you!”, “Take this!” and ‘Go back to your seat!’ Mr Said and Mr Mardini can be heard desperately trying to seek the safety of a waiting taxi.

One of the attackers shouts: “Where are you going?” as Mr Said holds up his hand to defend himself from another relentless barrage of blows.
At one point, a man wearing an Atlas Super Club T-shirt is seen giving one of the defenseless men a savage blow to the jaw.
While the footage cuts out as more men stream in, Daily Mail Australia has obtained exclusive images showing the two Australians eventually had to be rescued by police.
Both men lie slumped in the trailer of a police car, their T-shirts torn and blood-spattered, with nasty wounds on their heads.
A Badung police spokesman said the incident was triggered after the two Australians asked security to get them a taxi.
“After security stopped a taxi, one of the foreigners tried to ride his motorcycle out of the wrong exit,” the spokesman said.
“The security guard reprimanded the foreigner.” The foreigner then became angry and pushed the security guard.
“One of them allegedly tried to hit one of the security guards.”
The police spokesman said the two men tried to leave, but the security guard began “screaming and screaming” that they had tried to hit him.
“Other security forces and locals from the area then began pursuing the two foreigners,” the spokesman added.
“They were beaten by the crowd.”

However, both parties refused to file a police report.
The police spokesman said the investigation was still ongoing.
Daily Mail Australia contacted Atlas Super Club for comment. It describes itself as the “biggest nightclub in Bali”.
