Italy: Muslim screaming “Allahu akbar” stabs soldier, cops trying to determine if attack was terror-related
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.
The man fled from the scene after the unprovoked attack shortly after 10:45 am 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
