Ten men charged over a violent Brisbane brawl that left one man dead will remain behind bars until their next court appearance.

Kresto Wal Wal, Yohana Wal Wal, Gabreal Wal Wal, Santo Wal, Majok Riel Majok, Anas Ayman Abdu Musa and Joseph Lokolong were arrested on Wednesday over the gang fight.

Three other men, Juma Makuol Deng Makuol, Chan Kuchmol Kon and Alex Edward Deng, were also taken into custody.

Each of the men has been charged with murder and affray and multiple charges of acts intended to cause grievous bodily harm.

The men are alleged to have been involved in a wild brawl at O’Callaghan Park in Zillmere on Sunday night which left several injured.

Girum Mekonnen, 19, died from his injuries that night after being stabbed and bashed.

On Thursday, Brisbane Magistrates Court was so packed Magistrate Belinda Merrin had to stop proceedings and warn the public gallery about COVID-19 restrictions.

Only 18 people were allowed to sit in the courtroom as each of the men’s matters was mentioned.

Lokolong, clad in prison greens and frequently fidgeting before the brief court hearing, was the only one to appear via video link.

His defence lawyer, Bruce Peters, asked for the brief of evidence to be delivered by October 30.

Magistrate Merrin adjourned each of the matters until November 16.

None of the men made applications for bail.

The Courier Mail reported tense scenes outside of the courthouse as supporters and family gathered.

A large argument broke out between a group of women in attendance.
