Madrid - A man went berserk in the Spanish resort island of Ibiza on Wednesday, stabbing at least 10 people before being arrested, police said.

At around 13:00 the man, of Moroccan origin, "went into the street armed with a stick and a knife and began to attack passers-by, and then it appears he went into a supermarket," said a police spokesperson in Madrid.

"Between 10 and 12 people were injured," he said. "We don't know the seriousness of the injuries, but they have been taken to various medical centres."

An employee of the supermarket told Spanish public television he saw "colleagues losing blood, screaming and running. I saw someone start stabbing people and then running."

The man was arrested by police as he was trying to attack an officer with a stick, the police spokesperson said.

He said the man, who had been living in Ibiza "for some time", had a history of "resisting authority".
