SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA — Warring bikers brawled through Australia's largest airport Sunday, beating one suspected gang member to death and brandishing metal poles as they rampaged through the main domestic terminal in front of terrified travelers.

Police said a group of suspected gang members was ambushed after disembarking from an airplane.

About 15 men were involved, police said, and one died from head injuries after the brawl, which appeared to bear out warnings of an impending biker war in Sydney after a string of shootings and an explosion last month outside a Hells Angels clubhouse.
