Flights out of Milan's Malpensa airport were suspended Monday and a terminal building evacuated after a man smashed his car into the terminal and was shot by a police officer after trying to stab him.

A terminal at Milan's international airport was evacuated on Monday when a car crashed into the building.

Police say a Tunisian man crashed his car into the departure lounge in an effort to prevent his wife and children from leaving.

The man is not suspected of being involved in a terrorist attack. Security officials said the man got out of his car with a knife in his hand.

Police officers tried to calm him but eventually had to shoot him in the foot after he shouted threats and threw his knife.

Arrivals at Malpensa continued as normal.
