The men — Alex Deng, Joseph Lokolong, Majok Majok, Juma Makuol, Chan Kon, Anas Musa, Kresto Wal Wal, Yohana Wal Wal, Gabreal Wal and Santo Wal — are facing a string of charges, including murder, over the clash at a Zillmere park on Sunday.
Police allege Mekonnen was killed after he and others were taken by surprise at the park and assaulted with bats and knives.
It sparked a major police investigation involving homicide squad detectives, forensic, special officers and others, resulting in Wednesday’s arrests.
Each of the men had their cases briefly mentioned in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on Thursday morning and were adjourned to November 16.
Due to the nature of the charges, none of the defendants were able to apply for bail in the magistrates court.
