Two held over Italy NYE assault on women

Italian police have arrested two people on suspicion of involvement in a sexual assault against nine women in Milan on New Year's Eve, a judicial source says.

The source told Reuters that the two men - aged 21 and 18 - are both Italians and that police identified them with the help of surveillance-system videos in Milan's Duomo square, where celebrations were ongoing.

Police searches have targeted 18 suspects - including three minors - and prosecutors say they hope to identify more people as the investigation continues, the judicial source said.
