Two Britons gored as bull run festival starts
Daredevil runners injured in Pamplona, Spain
TWO Britons and an American were gored today in the running of the bulls through the streets of Pamplona in northern Spain, the regional government said.
Thousands of daredevil runners charged ahead of six fighting bulls on the third day of the annual San Fermin festival.
The trio were gored by a bull which broke free from the pack just before entering Pamplona’s bullring, a Navarra government statement said.
The bull charged the runners as they huddled on the ground beside a wooden fence, trying to protect themselves from it.
After several moments of tension, the bull was lured away by stick-wielding cowherds.
None of the three were seriously injured in the Pamplona bull run incident.
The morning bull runs, which take place daily until July 14, are the highlight of the festival in Pamplona, Spain.
