Three injured in running of the bulls

Officials say three revellers have been injured but there have been no gorings at the crowded weekend fourth running of the bulls at Spain’s San Fermin festival.

Red Cross spokesman Jose Aldaba said several people were treated by mobile units along the 850 metre course from a holding pen to Pamplona’s central bull ring.

Navarra Hospital doctor Fernando Boneta said three men had been taken to hospital, one with head injuries, another with a face wound and one with a back injury.

Pamplona swells each year at the weekend with people arriving from other parts of Spain to enjoy the festival atmosphere.

Today’s run was quite fast, lasting two minutes, 53 seconds and danger arose when three of the six bulls became separated at the back of the pack.
