He was then stopped by paramilitary Carabinieri police officers, and was said to have shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ – which translates to ‘God is great – as he was arrested, the publication reported.

The solider was taken to Fatebenefratelli Hospital where he was treated for a ‘deep’ stab wound and non-life-threatening injuries.

The 34-year-old, who belongs to the Fifth Alpine Regiment of the Julia Brigade, was conscious when he arrived at the hospital, the report confirmed.

An investigation has now reportedly been launched to determine whether or not the attacker had ‘links to terrorism’.
