Six runners were hurt, with three of them gored, on the last day of a crowded running of the bulls at the annual San Fermin festival in the Spanish city of Pamplona, according to the Red Cross on Sunday. Each morning from July 7-14 thousands of people, many wearing traditional white shirts with red scarves, line the narrow streets of the medieval city to take part in the centuries-old tradition of running with the bulls.

In an 875-meter (950-yard) chase, half a dozen, specially bred aggressive bulls race from their pen along a winding course to the city's bull ring, with some people from the crowd running alongside while trying to dodge horns and stampeding hooves. The Red Cross said the six injured runners were hospitalized. The three gored by bulls had injuries in the armpit, arm, and leg, a medical official told the press.

The bulls are killed in the ring later in the day.
