A young American on his first trip abroad joined the street frenzy of Pamplona's running of the bulls Thursday, only to fall onto the cobblestones and be fatally gored by a charging 1,100-pound bull. Matthew P. Tassio, 22, of Glen Ellyn, Ill., died at Navarra Hospital shortly after he was lacerated in the midsection by the long horns of one of six fighting bulls in the run made famous by Ernest Hemingway's 1926 novel "The Sun Also Rises."

A matador was seriously gored Thursday during the daily bullfight at the famed San Fermin festival in the northern Spanish city of Pamplona. The bull's horn pieced Vicente Bejarano's groin as he tried to plunge his sword into the animal. He was lifted into the air for several seconds. No internal organs were damaged, but the 10-inch wound would probably prevent Bejarano from ever fighting bulls again, the state-owned news agency Efe quoted Dr. Hector Ortiz as saying. Ortiz operated on Bejarano.

Nine others were injured in an especially dangerous and chaotic chapter of the running of the bulls. Pamplona officials identified the man as Daniel Jimeno Romero, 27, from Alcala de Henares, outside Madrid. He was on vacation with his parents and girlfriend, who identified him. The San Fermin festival website said Jimeno Romero was gored in the neck and lung during a run in which a bull separated from the pack.

Fourteen people were injured in an especially bloody running of the bulls during Pamplona's annual San Fermin Festival. Two Pamplona natives were gored as they bolted through the cobbled streets ahead of six fighting bulls and a herd of steers. Also, one animal hooked his horn on the belt of a runner and dragged him about 30 feet before the red sash snapped. Later, some runners slipped and caused a pileup in the street.
