More than 300, 000 people have been protesting in Spain since Thursday after five men were found guilty of sexual abuse instead of rape.

According to BBC News, the men, who refer to themselves as "The Wolf Pack", recorded themselves assaulting an 18 year old woman at the city of Pamplona's bull-running festival.

Many believe that the verdict was too lenient, and Spanish law differs sexual abuse from rape if it involves violence or intimidation.

The Spanish government claims that it will review its classification of sexual offences.
