Officials say the thrill-seekers fleeing the beasts were crushed at the narrow entrance to the bullring. Two of the injuries were gorings.

As the huge animals thundered into the entrance of the tunnel, they were blocked by a mound of dozens of people who had fallen and were piled on top of one other.

One bull that had fallen before the entrance got up and charged into the clogged passageway. Two steers jumped over the pile of people as they began to get up and flee.

An Interior Ministry spokesman says a gate normally used to let regional police into ringside positions was pushed wide open by a flood of runners, causing an obstruction for others trying to enter the main arena.
