Man stabs policeman and soldier at Milan train station

MILAN (REUTERS) - A man of North African origin stabbed an army officer and a policeman at the main train station in Italy's second city Milan on Thursday (May 18) evening, Italian newspapers reported.

Both men were taken to hospital, one with a wound to his arm and the other with a wound to the neck, but neither was in a"worrying" condition, the newspapers La Repubblica and Corriere della Sera said.

They said the suspect had been detained by police, and had been arrested in the past for drug-related offences.
