PAMPLONA, Spain (AP) — Spanish officials say the opening bull run of this year's San Fermin festival in the northern city of Pamplona has left at least five people injured, including two who were gored by bulls.

Red Cross spokesman José Aldaba says the most seriously injured were treated Sunday at the main regional hospital following the race, which lasted 2 minutes and 41 seconds.

The six bulls, accompanied by tame bullocks, ran together in a pack for most of the 850-meter (930-yard) course to the city's bullring. One of them stumbled toward the end, causing panic and at least one goring when it charged at some racers.

The nine-day San Fermin fiesta, where the bulls are run every morning and killed in afternoon bullfights, draws around one million visitors annually.
