MILAN: One person was killed and four others were injured, including Spanish footballer Pablo Mari, in a knife attack in a shopping centre near Milan on Thursday.

A 46-year-old Italian, apparently suffering from psychological problems, was arrested immediately after the attack at Assago, on the outskirts of Milan.

According to television reports, he grabbed a knife from a shelf and started randomly attacking people.

The person who died was a 30-year-old employee of supermarket Carrefour, located inside the shopping centre where the attack took place.

The news agency reported that four others were seriously injured. Among those hurt was Mari, the Spanish defender for Monza football club, on loan from Arsenal. A source close to the club said he was in hospital, conscious and able to speak.
