Americans gored

The week's news at a glance.

Pamplona, Spain

Two U.S. citizens were gored this week during the running of the bulls at the San Fermin bullfighting festival. Every morning during the annual eight-day festival, hundreds of young men—many of them drunk or badly hung over—run in front of the bulls as they race through town on their way to the ring. Every year, some runners take sharp horns in their backs or butts when angry bulls catch up to them. Robert Fluhr, 27, of Arkansas was in serious condition following surgery for a wounded buttock. Victor Lombardi, 40, of Seattle was doing better; he was only gored in the arm. The festival, known for its all-night street parties, dates back to the 16th century but gained world fame from Ernest Hemingway’s 1926 novel The Sun Also Rises.
