One person has been hospitalized after several thousand people tested their speed and bravery by dashing with six fighting bulls through the streets of the northern Spanish city of Pamplona. Navarra Hospital chief Javier Sesma said the person sustained neck injuries in a fall in the fifth run of the famed San Fermin festival. However, he said no one was gored along the 930-yard (850-meter) route to Pamplona's bull ring Thursday. There were moments of tension when a bull became separated from the pack and looked as if he would charge some of the runners. He was eventually guided into the ring without incident. The nationally televised morning runs are the highlight of the 9-day street festival that became world famous after Ernest Hemingway's 1926 novel "The Sun Also Rises." People dressed in typical San Fermin white and red clothes, dance in a street of the old city, at the San Fermin fiestas, in Pamplona, northern Spain.

Spring floodwaters are wreaking havoc in many locations around the world this month. The most disasterous flooding came on Wednesday in France when flash floods hit the back hills of the French Riviera and turned streets into rivers of surging, muddy water. The death toll from the flooding has risen to 25. In Myanmar and Bangladesh, floods and landslides triggered by incessant monsoon rains have killed more than 100 people, officials said Thursday. In the United States, flooding in Texas, Nebraska and Wyoming has caused massive damage to farms and homes.

A railroad bridge is down over the Elkhorn River near Norfolk, Neb., Wednesday, June 16, 2010. The swollen Elkhorn River crested two inches short of a levee protecting Norfolk, preventing further disaster as emergency workers Wednesday continued their search for a man who fell into the raging river after the bridge collapsed outside of town a day earlier.
