At least eight people were injured during an annual running of the bulls event that went awry in Huancavelica in Peru's Cusco province on Saturday.

Participants and onlookers ran for cover as angry bulls charged at crowds and into the adjacent food stands.

People tried to assist the injured as bulls tossed men into the air and against nearby vehicles.

The event, where bulls are released into an open field, is part of a four-day religious festival held between December 30 and January 2.
