The first bull run at Pamplona’s San Fermín festival held in three years due to the pandemic has taken place. No one was gored but several runners endured knocks and hard falls. The six bulls guided by six tame oxen charged through Pamplona’s streets in around 2 minutes, 35 seconds. The Pamplona hospital said that five people needed treatment. The bulls that run each morning are killed in bullfights in the afternoon by professional bullfighters. The incredibly popular festivities that draw tens of thousands of visitors from around the world were canceled in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic.

Jailed American basketball star Brittney Griner returns to a Russian court Thursday as calls increase for Washington to do more to secure her release. Griner was detained in February at a Moscow airport after vape canisters with cannabis oil allegedly were found in her luggage. She faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted of large-scale transportation of drugs. The trial of the Phoenix Mercury star and two-time Olympic gold medalist began last week but the second session was adjourned because two scheduled witnesses did not appear. President Joe Biden assured Griner's wife in a phone call on Wednesday that he's doing everything he can to try to obtain the athlete's release as soon as possible.
