New York Truck Attack: Eight Dead
Eight people were killed and 11 injured when the driver of the truck hit people on a cycle path near the World Trade Center Tuesday (October 31) in Manhattan, New York City.
A 29-year-old man was shot by police as he left the car and detained. Media named him as Sayfullo Saipov, an Uzbek immigrant who came to the US in 2010.
Officials said it was a terror attack.
The suspect is now in a hospital. A note was found in the truck that referred to so-called Islamic State, law enforcement sources were quoted as saying by US media.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said the incident in Manhattan was a “cowardly act of terror aimed at innocent civilians”.
