Pickaxe Rampage In Milan Leaves One Dead

A Ghanaian immigrant has killed one man and injured four others in a frenzied and apparently random pickaxe attack in Milan.

The attacker wildly swung the pickaxe, running down streets and ferociously striking passers-by, mainly on the head, witnesses said.

Pools of blood stained the streets in a residential district of the northern Italian city after the attack early today.

Carabinieri police said the 21-year-old attacker was taken into custody shortly after the rampage.
