Two men were killed and at least 15 injured during a bullfight in northern Colombia.

The bullfight that took two lives was held on the second day of a popular festival on the country's Caribbean coast on Sunday. Some reports said that up to 44 people were injured.

According to Sky News, one of the victims, 46-year-old Daniel Cordona, was killed when the bull's horn gored through his heart.

"Unfortunately the animal caught him by surprise and gored him," said spectator Orlando Ramos.
