  • Five men were accused of the gang rape of a girl during the city's bull-running festivities

There were protests outside court in Pamplona on Thursday as the sentences were read out in the trial of five men accused of the gang rape of a girl during the city's bull-running festivities. Although the prosecution sought a rape verdict, judges decided on the lesser verdict of sexual abuse, giving each member of the gang, who had nicknamed themselves “the pack”, nine-year sentences.
