Man killed during bull run in eastern Spain

A French citizen has died after being gored by a bull during a festival in a small town in eastern Spain.

A statement from the town hall of Pedreguer, in Alicante, said the 44-year-old man had been standing with some friends when he was gored by one of the bulls.

The incident occurred during a running of the bulls being held as part of the town’s summer festival.

The death came as Spain’s most celebrated bull-running festival, San Fermin in Pamplona, came to an end today.

Ten people were injured after being gored during the nine-day festival this year.
