Only minor injuries in Pamplona bull-running festival
Bulls thundered into and trampled several thrill-seeking runners as they raced down the dew-slicked cobblestone streets of Pamplona during the second day of the weeklong San Fermin bull-running festival but officials say no one was gored.
Dr. Ignacio Iribarren, a hospital spokesman, says that while many runners suffered minor cuts and bruises, only one person received medical treatment for a bruised back.
The second San Fermin feast day is usually one of the most crowded and traditionally features bulls from the Miura breeding ranch, some of Spain's largest and most fearsome fighting animals, and Sunday's run was completed in a fast time of two minutes, 27 seconds.
The festival in this northern city dates back to the late 16th century and is also known for its all-night street parties.
