PAMPLONA, Spain — A man from Valencia died Saturday after being gored in a late-night bull run near the southern Spanish town of Alicante, while two men were gored and 12 others injured in the more popular morning bull-run race in Pamplona.

The deadly goring occurred about 1 a.m. during festivities that also included female cattle in the small village of Pedreguera. The Red Cross said a heifer gored the 29-year-old man through the thorax and abdomen. He was pronounced dead an hour later at a nearby hospital.

The town suspended bull-related festivities for the day.

At the famed San Fermin festival, the bull run was unusually long Saturday, with one bull left stranded at the starting gate, where he proceeded to charge and strike a couple of runners. Many other participants fell and were stampeded by the head of the pack in the 930-yard race.

Another of the six bulls in the run got separated from the pack, did a U-turn and gored a nearby runner, lifting his body off the ground and flipping him over.

A government statement said a 33-year-old Japanese man and a 24-year-old Spaniard were gored. The Navarra hospital confirmed the Japanese man had suffered a 6-inch thorax wound and was still under observation, while the local man was gored in his right arm. Both were in fair condition.

The regional government said a dozen others were also taken to city hospitals for trauma care, including a 37-year-old from Barcelona and another 33-year-old Japanese man.

More than 1,000 people took part in the Pamplona run, which lasted just over four minutes, about 11/2 times longer than usual.

Meanwhile, a judge in Pamplona on Saturday ordered five men accused of sexually assaulting a woman Thursday to be jailed without bail.

The assault had triggered protests in Pamplona.
