8 killed in New York terror attack, suspect in custody

At least eight people were killed and 11 others injured in Lower Manhattan on Tuesday afternoon local time after a gunman in a truck plowed through a busy bike path, an incident the United States termed as an “act of terrorism”.

The suspect, a 29-year-old man identified as Saifullo Saipov, of Uzbek descent, was shot in the stomach before being arrested.

US President Donald Trump denounced the attack, saying, “We must not allow Islamic State to return”.
