About eight people have been killed and 15 injured in yesterday’s terror attack in New York, USA.


The attacker identified as 29 years Sayfullo Saipov drove a rented truck down a bike path in Manhattan a few blocks from the site of the World Trace Center memorial.


According to witnesses, people on bikes were left scattered on the path and the attacker then rammed a school bus into them.


Other witnesses said he then got out of the truck screaming “Allahu Akbar,” wielding two guns, which police later said were fake. Witnesses said they initially thought the attack was a Halloween prank. The suspect was chased by police who shot him in the leg and arrested him. They said they were not seeking anyone else in connection with the attack. FBI agents have been searching the rented Home Depot truck for explosives.

Saipov is Uzbek national who came into US in 2010.
