Pickaxe Rampage In Milan Leaves One Dead

An immigrant has killed one man and injured four others in an apparently random pickaxe attack in Milan, police have said.

The attack, which police say was carried out by a Ghanaian immigrant with a criminal record, caused terror on the streets in a residential district of the city on Saturday.

Witnesses said a man ran through the streets wildly swinging a pickaxe and ferociously struck passers-by, mainly on the head.

Pools of blood were said to have "stained the streets".
