1 dead, 10 wounded in northern Colombia bullfights (video)

One man has been killed and 10 others were seriously injured in a series of corralejas, or popular bullfights, in a town in the north of Colombia.

The deadly victim was horned by a bull weighing over 1,322 pounds, who attacked and dragged the man around the bullfighting area for minutes after he had died from his initial injuries.

The corralejas were held in Fundacion, Magdalena.

The bullfights, during which men climb into a closed ring to tease an angry bull, are a tradition in the northern coastal region of Colombia.
