Terrorist Attack in Manhattan
8 People were murdered, and a dozen more injured in Manhattan, when Sayfullo Saipov from Uzbekistan drove a rented truck through a bicycle path. Saipov is from Uzbekistan in Central Asia, but has been living in the United States since 2010. Mayor Bill de Blasio has called this a “cowardice act of terror” and a note found by investigators near the crime scene, shows this act was claimed by ISIS. Of the 8 people murdered, 5 were Argentinians. Saipov was shot by police, but has since then finished surgery and remains in the hospital. While some reports indicate that the suspect shouted “Allahu Akbar” conflicting reports may suggest otherwise.
