MILAN: A man stabbed two army officers and a policeman at the main train station in Italy's second city Milan on Thursday evening, a police spokeswoman said, adding that currently it was not being treated as a terrorist attack.

Two of the officers were being treated in hospital as moderately critical cases, the spokeswoman said.
Asked if the incident was terrorist-related, the spokeswoman said: "We don't think at the moment that that is the right hypothesis to explore."

She said police were still carrying out "rigorous checks."


The man, who has been detained, was identified by police as Italo-Tunisian Hosni Ismail Tommaso Bejn Yousef, born in Milan in 1966.

He allegedly drew a kitchen knife when he was approached by the agents who asked to see his identity documents.
