3 injured in 6th bull run at Spain's San Fermin

Associated Press

PAMPLONA, Spain - Three Spanish men were injured Saturday as several thousand people tested their bravery by dashing alongside six fighting bulls through the slippery streets of Pamplona in the sixth running of the bulls at Spain's San Fermin festival.

Spanish Red Cross spokesman Jose Aldaba said no one was gored but one runner was taken to a hospital with a suspected bone fracture.

Oscar Gorria, deputy director of surgical services for the region of Navarra, said one man sustained an arm injury while another had cuts and bruises to a leg.

Municipal workers had applied an anti-slip coating on the cobblestones of the narrow streets in a bid to lessen injuries after rain had fallen overnight.

Weekend runs traditionally attract the most thrill-seekers keen on running the 930-yard (850-meter) course from a holding pen to Pamplona's bull ring.

Juan Arnal, a city official responsible for street safety, said the large turnout despite heavy rain spurred the decision to spray the cobblestones.
