Tourists from Argentina, Belgium among dead in Manhattan terrorist truck attack

Truck drives onto New York bike path in apparent fatal terror attack

Hello and welcome to our live coverage of developments following a truck attack in New York City on Tuesday afternoon that killed eight and injured 11. Mirrakhmat Muminov, a longtime acquaintance of Saipov's, told Current Time TV that Saipov had had "unfriendly" disagreements with other members of the Uzbek community in the state of Ohio.

On Tuesday night, law enforcement officials converged on an address in Paterson, N.J., believed to be Mr. Saipov's home.

This isn't the first time an Uber driver has been accused of murder.

The suspected attacker, Sayfullo Saipov, a 29-year-old born in Uzbekistan and a legal US green card holder, drove a rented Home Depot pickup truck directly onto a packed bicycle path. His victims were bicyclists, joggers, and pedestrians. "I like to think of them as ISIS weathervanes, showing us which way the wind is blowing".

"All information is preliminary as the investigation is ongoing", the New York Police Department said. It is lovely.While training for a half-marathon, I would jog past the new World Trade Center gleaming in the summer sun and keep on going until my muscles gave out. The victim had been visiting New York with her sister and mother, Reynders said.

The Belgian government confirmed that one of its citizens was among the dead.

Donald Trump called for new restrictions on immigrants after the attack. We must get MUCH tougher (and smarter).

Authorities say Saipov carried out the attack with a vehicle he rented from Home Depot.

Law enforcement sources told Sky News that the van was driven more than 10 blocks from Houston Street down to Chambers Street along the west side highway on a busy bike path.

The Argentine consul in New York, Mateo Estremé, told Clarín that the survivors were in shock and that they did not immediately know what had happened to their friends. He said Saipov later moved to New Jersey and began driving for Uber.

"Currently there is one person in custody. It looked as if he'd been shot". A police officer shot Saipov when he wouldn't drop the weapons, police said. The men were on a trip to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their graduation from high school. Investigators believe Saipov, who arrived in the U.S. from Uzbekistan in 2010, was acting as a "lone wolf" and not part of a wider terror plot.

"The general consulate continues working in permanent contact with the police and the hospital that received those affected, as well as with their relatives in Argentina", the statement continued.

One thing we do fully comprehend is that, after something of a delay, the vehicle attack-a terror tactic so simple and yet so hard to defend against-has been exported to the United States.
