Three people die during traditional bull races in eastern Spain

Three people, including a French tourist, have died in eastern Spain after being gored during a bull run.

Two of the victims, aged 50 and 56, were killed on Tuesday after they were brutally beaten by bulls in the suburbs of the city of Valencia.

Emergency services also confirmed that a French tourist, aged 60, died in hospital on Monday, ten days after he was gored in a village near Alicante.

Traditional bull runs are held every summer in Spain when villages honor their patron saint.

The most famous bull run takes place as part of the San Fermin festival in Pamplona, ​​where six fighting bulls chase hundreds of runners in an 850-meter race through the city’s cobbled streets.

This year six people were sick during the festivitiesbut no serious injuries were reported.
