San Fermin-festen i gang i Pamplona. Se bildene!

Et hav av mennesker kledd i rødt og hvitt fylte sentrum av Pamplona for å markere starten på den berømte San Fermin-festivalen. Folk dynket hverandre i rødvin og gledet seg over fyrverkeriet som betyr startskuddet på den ni dager lange festen til minne om den lokale helgenen Fermin.

Første løp ferdig: Fire sendt til sykehus - se bildene her

Macho

Festivalen ble udøeliggjort som en machomarkering av forfatteren Ernest Hemingway, i romanen «Og solen går sin gang» i 1926.

Saken fortsetter.

IKKE BARE OKSER: Puppe-flashing var et populært innslag under straten på den omdiskuterte festivalen. Selve okseløpene starter mandag, til store protester fra dyrevernerer.


Mandag morgen er det klart for det første okseløpet som festivalen er så kjent for. Vågale turister fra hele verden kommer til byen for å løpe foran oksene gjennom byens gater.

15 mennesker er omkommet i okseløpene siden man begynte å registrere dødsfallene i 1911. Sist gang var i 2010. I fjor ble 50 sendt til sykehus med skader. Få av dem som blir skadd blir rammet av oksenes horn, men faller, blir slått over ende eller trampet ned av dyrene. 

Under søndagens åpning ble det rapportert om en skadd mann. Han skal ha blitt skadd som følge av hopping fra en fontene.

Tyrefekting

Oksene som deltar i løpene blir oftest drept i tyrefektinger etterpå. Tyrefekting er fremdeles populært i Spania, men kritikerne blir stadig flere.

Også forut for årets festival har det vært demonstrasjoner mot dyreplageri.
