Woman dies during Spanish bull run festival

Woman dies during Spanish bull run festival

Officials say a 48-year-old woman has died at a running-of-the-bulls event in central Spain.
A statement issued by local authorities in the town of Arganda del Rey says Maria del Carmen Lopez del Burgo died after she was struck in the head by a passing bull on Thursday at an annual bull running festival.
This was the fifth fatality during traditional bull-related celebrations in Spain this year.
Authorities in the eastern town of La Llosa say that another 72 year-old-man died Wednesday after he was also hit by a running bull.
Bullfights, and the bull runs that often precede them, have been the focus of attention after northeastern Catalonia this year became the second region to ban such fights, after the Canary Islands in 1991.
