MILAN (Reuters) - The underground service at Milan's central station was halted on Monday after a suspect package was found, a spokesman for the local transport authority said.

The metro station was evacuated and police are investigating, the spokesman added.

Security across Italy has been heightened this month following attacks in France and Germany, while border checks have also been increased.
