A 37-year-old Algerian, who was wanted for terrorist activity and connection with the jihadist organization Islamic State (ISIS), was arrested on Thursday morning in Milan.
According to the information so far, the men of the Italian police spotted him in the subway of the Italian co-capital and, when they asked him to show his papersthe man shouted “Allahu Akbar” and tried to take a knife with a twelve-centimeter blade from his backpack.
The thirty-seven-year-old Algerian was transferred to the San Vittore prison in the Italian co-capital and is about to be deported to Algeria.
It is recalled that yesterday, Wednesday, in the afternoon, an alarm was also sounded at Rome’s Fiumicino airport. An Egyptian man, 29, felt unwell while on a plane that had taken off from Paris to Cairo. The staff asked the young Egyptian to sign a special paper, expressing his consent to be given a series of drugs. But next to his signature he also wrote the phrase “I love Allah” in English.
The flight attendants informed the pilot, who changed the flight plan and landed at the airport in the Italian capital. Elite snipers had also arrived on the runway in the meantime. It was eventually determined that he was not a terrorist, but the captain of the aircraft demanded that the man in question transfer to Cairo on a different flight.
