Two injured as crowds take on bull run at Pamplona festival

At least two people have been injured in the fourth running of the bulls at Pamplona's San Fermin festival in Spain.

Red Cross spokesman Jose Aldaba said that both have been taken to hospital but neither is in a serious condition. No one was gored.

Monday's run along the 850-metre cobbled street course lasted two minutes, 19 seconds, which was one of the fastest so far.

Five people - four Americans and a Spaniard - have been gored since the runs started on Friday.

In the bull runs, hundreds of people test their bravery and speed to dash through the streets with six fighting bulls without getting gored.

The nine-day fiesta became world famous with Ernest Hemingway's 1926 novel The Sun Also Rises.
