Madrid matadors gored by bulls at festival launch

A major event in Madrid's bullfighting season has been cancelled after all three matadors were gored by bulls.

David Mora suffered the worst injuries, as one of the animals rammed its horn into his leg and tossed him into the air at the Las Ventas bullring.

He was said to be in a serious but no longer life-threatening condition.

The organisers of the prestigious San Isidro festival have said it was the first time in 35 years that the event had to be suspended.
