MADRID (Reuters) - Two people were gored on Sunday on the fourth day of the San Fermin festival in northern Spain, where bulls chase red-scarved runners through the streets of Pamplona.

Sunday's gorings came a day after a bullfighter and a man participating in a village bull run were killed in two of the many other summer festivals in Spain.

San Fermin is the most famous of the festivals, attracting thousands of revellers who visit from around the world to witness the eight daily bull runs along an 825-metre route through Pamplona's old town.

The two men were gored in the neck and chest, the festival's organisers said on their Twitter account. Three others suffered trauma-related injuries.
