Italy police probe Milan train station attacker for terrorist links

Italian anti-terrorism police said on Friday that they were investigating a man who stabbed a police officer and two soldiers at Milan’s main train station for alleged terrorist ties. 20-year-old Ismail Hosni attacked the men on Thursday night after they asked for identification.

According to local media, the assailant was stopped by two military officers and a member of the special railway police as part of a routine check on passengers around 8 pm local time. He told the authorities “I am alone and abandoned,” before pulling a knife.
