ROUGH CUT (No reporter narration) STORY: A traditional part of Huancavelica's annual "Fiesta de las Cruces" (Festival of the Crosses) celebration, the bull run is not for the faint of heart. This year three people were wounded as they tried their luck in the ring with the bulls. The annual festival in Huancavelica, located some 495 kms (307 miles) to the southeast of capital Lima, is held for six days in May during which revelers bear crosses and local bands play music in the plazas. The festival culminates in bull fights and possibly, for those either brave or foolhardy enough to challenge the beasts, a stay in hospital.
