Spanish bull run: 28 injured after being trampled and gored

Spanish health officials say the last run left six people injured in the fastest dash this year.

Tomas Belzunegui, a spokesman with Navarra’s provincial hospital, said the six were bruised after being trampled on Saturday as the bulls completed the 850-metre course along cobbled streets in two minutes, 12 seconds.

One man was dragged by a bull for several metres after a horn got entangled in his scarf and was taken away on a stretcher.

Two of the 28 people injured this year were gored.

The festival, where people enjoy food, drink and dancing, draws around a million visitors each year.
