    A deadly stabbing attack took place in the Italian city of Canneto sull'Oglio on Saturday, La Gazzetta di Mantova reported.

    A woman entered the building of the communal museum of the northern Italian town of Canneto sull'Oglio on Saturday and attacked the visitors with a knife, La Gazzetta di Mantova reported.

    Then the woman went out of the building and tried again to hit passers-by with a knife. As a result of this attack, four people were injured. Later, a 54-year-old Italian, who received severe stab wounds, died. There are no threats to the lives of the other victims.

    ​Local police services arrived at the scene and cordoned off the entire area near the museum. Soon they managed to detain the attacker, who turned out to be a 58-year-old Polish citizen. The reasons for its inadequate behavior are still being probed. The policeman who detained the woman said that when he approached her, she was literally "popeyed."
