Slashing attack wounds 5


Italian police were investigat­ing a Somali asylum-seeker for attempted murder Sunday after he allegedly slashed two ticket controller­s aboard a bus in the resort town of Rimini, then

wounded three other people, including a boy, as he fled.

Investigat­ors are ruling out terrorism as a motive and believe the 26-year-old man was under the influence of drugs during the knife attack Saturday night, according to Italy’s state broadcaste­r RAI.

State TV said the man had applied for asylum in Italy and was living in a migrant residence run by a Catholic charity.
