Bulls gore three men at Pamplona fiesta in Spain

Three men – two Americans and a Spaniard – were gored by bulls at Spain’s annual San Fermin fiesta in Pamplona.

The Spaniard – a local from Navarra – was seriously hurt, as a bull tipped him over and he banged his head on the cobbles. The other injuries were less serious.

It is day one of the bull run, in which men sprint 875m (2,871ft) through narrow streets, pursued by fighting bulls.

The festival in northern Spain lasts a week.
