Tomato wars in Colombia - mass food fight in Sutamarchan

This Sunday, an enormous crowd of locals and tourists pelted each other with tomatoes in a traditional 'Tomatina' that left the Colombian town of Sutamarchan awash with red pulp.

The crowd sprinted to a huge pile of tomatoes in the middle of a field and white t-shirts turned red as the food flew through the air.

This area, two hours north of the capital city of Bogota, is well-known for its tomatoes and the Tomatina is part of a weekend cultural festival that marks the end of harvest in the agricultural region.
