Two Americans and a British citizen were gored and eight others injured Tuesday as thousands of daredevils dashed alongside fighting bulls in the first bull-run of Pamplona's San Fermin festival, Spanish organizers said.

The San Fermin press office said a 38-year-old American identified only by his initials, M.W.O., was gored in the armpit. A 27-year-old Californian identified by the initials D.M.O. was also gored.

A 30-year-old Brit with the initials A.B.O. was gored in the perineum.

None of the three was said to be in serious condition.

Three Americans were among the eight others injured, most with bruises sustained in falls and crowd crushes during the nationally televised run that lasted just over two minutes.

In all, 15 people have died from gorings in San Fermin since record keeping began in 1924.
