MILAN (Reuters) - Prosecutors in Milan are investigating a man who stabbed a policeman and two army officers at the city's main train station on Thursday for alleged international terrorism, an investigative source said on Friday.

Ismail Hosni, 20, attacked the three men on Thursday night after they asked to see his identity papers. None of the three suffered life threatening injuries.

Italian media reported Hosni had dual Italian, Tunisian nationality and had been born in Milan.
