Two Spaniards gored

Two Spaniards were gored in the penultimate running of the bulls of Pamplona's San Fermin festival, organisers said.

The San Fermin press office said one was gored in the abdomen and another in the leg. A third Spaniard suffered knee bruises. None was reported to be in a serious condition.

Ten people, including four Americans, have been gored in this year's festival.
The daily run see thousands of people racing six fighting bulls along a narrow 930-yard (850m) course from a holding pen to the city's bullring. Today's dash lasted 2 minutes, 12 seconds.

The bulls are killed by professional matadors in bullfights each afternoon during the festival.

Bull runs are a traditional part of summer festivals across Spain. Dozens are injured each year, mostly in falls.

In all, 15 people have died from gorings in Pamplona since record-keeping began in 1924 for the San Fermin festival.
