MONTPELLIER, France, Aug 7, 2007 (AFP) - The president of a French bullfighting club died overnight Tuesday from injuries sustained when he was gored by a bull that had escaped the ring at a weekend event.

Bernard Coffin, 69, was gored in the leg by the young bull after finding himself trapped behind the gate of an enclosure at Saturday's bullfighting festival in Boujan-sur-Libron.

Coffin was taken to hospital in nearby Beziers and operated on but died overnight following the operation, police said.

An investigation has been launched into the accident.
