Lisbon - Authorities say a Portuguese bull-running festival will continue this week despite the fatal goring of two men by a bull.

Officials said the victims, aged 46 and 27, were taking part in festivities late on Friday in Moita, a small town about 30km south of the capital, Lisbon.

At the annual town festival, bulls are set loose in the down town streets, which are fenced off, and people can run into the street to taunt the animals. Thousands of people attend the festival.

Officials said on Sunday that spectators are warned of the dangers of entering the barricaded streets where the bulls run free.

They said the festival would continue on Monday.
