Man reportedly shouts ‘Allahu Akbar' after stabbing Italian soldier
[NY Post] An Italian soldier was stabbed in the neck Tuesday by an attacker brandishing a pair of scissors in front of Milan's central train station – and later shouting "Alahu Akbar," according to a report.
"We'll probably never know his motivation"
The man fled from the scene after the unprovoked attack shortly after 10:45 a.m. in Piazza Duca d'Aosta and ran toward Via Vittor Pisani but was stopped by paramilitary Carabinieri police officers, according to Milano Today.
He apparently shouted "Allahu Akbar!" ‐ Arabic for "God is great!" – as he was being arrested, the news outlet reported.
An investigation was launched to determine if the attack was terrorism-related.
The 34-year-old soldier was taken to a nearby hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to the report.
