PAMPLONA, Spain — Pamplona's nine-day San Fermin festival ended Tuesday with no deaths from daily bull runs, but officials said a French tourist died after being gored at a small town festival in eastern Spain.

A statement from the town hall of Pedreguer said the 44-year-old man died around 1 a.m. after being gored during a bull-running event held as part of the town's summer festival.

Ten people, including four Americans, were gored in this year's festival in Pamplona, the country's most celebrated such event, but no one was killed.

Bull runs are a traditional part of summer festivals across Spain.


The July 6-14 Pamplona fiesta, named after the northern city's patron saint, dates to the late 16th century. It was immortalized in Ernest Hemingway's 1926 novel ''The Sun Also Rises'' and attracts thousands annually.
