2 gored in 4th bull-run of Spain's San Fermin

PAMPLONA, Spain (AP) - A fighting bull has gored two people and tossed several others into the air in a frantic fourth running of the bulls at Spain's San Fermin festival in Pamplona.

Spanish Red Cross spokesman Jose Aldaba said the two were gored in the leg and another four people were taken to Pamplona hospitals for other injuries sustained in the 8 a.m. dash Thursday.

There were no immediate details on the identities of those injured.

The gorings were caused by a lone bull that raced ahead of the pack, raising panic among the hundreds of screaming runners along the 930-yard (850-meter) course from a holding pen to Pamplona's bull ring.

The nine-day street-partying festival,immortalized in Ernest Hemingway's 1926 novel "The Sun Also Rises," attracts thousands of foreign tourists.
