Scenes of chaos at a weekend bullfight in Colombia. At least 19 people were injured, including two seriously, in the Colombian municipality of Sabanalarga on Sunday. This local bullfight is different from most - here, amateur matadors are permitted to jump into the ring and taunt the bulls. But, fuelled by drunkenness and a party-like atmosphere, many of those who ran into the ring were gored by the rampaging bulls.

The violent festival takes place at the start of October every year, and has reportedly been tradition since 1920.
