Spain: 7 gored in Pamplona bull run

Six foreigners, including three Americans, were among seven people gored in a hair-raising second running of the bulls Friday at Pamplona’s San Fermin festival, the Navarra regional government said. A 58-year-old Spaniard identified only by the initials F.L.R., a 73-year-old South African man identified as M.H.O., and a Canadian aged 48 with the initials P.C.O., were in serious condition after being gored, a government statement said.

The regional government said one American, 55 and identified by the initials P.G. O., and another aged 23 years with the initials W.R.O., were gored but their injuries were reported to be less serious. A third, 46-year-old American with the initials J.G.O. and an Indian aged 26, with the initials N.S.O. were also said to have suffered less serious goring injuries.

The regional government said nine others were also taken to city hospitals for other injuries suffered in the run. Several of the six bulls used in the run got separated from the pack moments into the 8 a.m. run and began charging whatever came in sight. The nine-day fiesta became world famous with Ernest Hemingway’s 1926 novel “The Sun Also Rises” and attracts thousands of foreign tourists.
