PM Narendra Modi among world leaders to condemn incident — Manhattan terror attack

Marathon event postponed after terror attack

According to eyewitnesses, at one point the truck turned back to the road and hit a bus.

Authorities are also paying close attention to the note that was left inside the rental truck. A police officer on patrol confronted him with his own weapon and fired, striking him in the abdomen. Earlier, law enforcement sources told local media that the incident is being investigated as a terrorist attack.

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

New York Police Commissioner James O'Neil told reporters witnesses relayed hearing Saipov say "Allahu Akbar" as he exited his vehicle. He was shot and is in custody, hospitalized but expected to survive.

The Department of Foriegn Affairs (DFA) on Wednesday said no Filipino has been reported among the casualties when a suspect using a rented truck ran over pedestrians in downtown Manhattan.

The driver's name is Sayfullo Saipov.

Trump's comments came after a slew of early-morning tweets railing against the suspect and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who played a key role in shaping the legislation creating the diversity lottery program.

Saipov, who was born in Uzbekistan, has lived in Ohio, Florida, and most recently in Paterson, New Jersey.

Leslie Danoff, who lives near the site of the attack and could see bodies on the ground from her window, told NPR she was grateful that first responders were on the scene quickly. Taking to Twitter, the Prime Minister said, "Strongly condemn the terror attack in New York City".

"In NYC, looks like another attack by a very sick and deranged person". Barriers had been placed around soft targets across the Big Apple, including Times Square. As passersby looked on in horror, the driver carried on south for sixteen blocks.

A group of friends from Argentina were celebrating the 30th anniversary of their high school graduation in New York City when they were struck by a truck as they enjoyed a group bike ride.

The Hudson River Greenway, the part along the West Side Highway where this attack happened, is the busiest bike path in the country, according to Hudson River Park.

He added: "In doing that, they knew they couldn't train people to do complicated things like build bombs, so they urged them to use these obtainable items as the weapons and to target places that would be easy to attack". Its Critical Response Command unit has 500 officers specially trained to deal with the threats posed by terrorism.

Meanwhile, the city's residents appear to be following Cuomo's earlier advice to "be New Yorkers and live your life". However, The New York Times reported that he was on the radar of federal authorities. I want merit based. Among the wounded were three additional Belgian nationals and a sixth Argentine.

"New Yorkers showed up".

Manhattan is a madcap mixture of pedestrians and cars and bicyclists and tourists and gawkers and standers. Blocker vehicles protected the parade's route. The terrorists want to affirm that this nation is somehow anti-Muslim.
