Truck driver kills 8 on bike path in New York   

NEW YORK (AP) - A man in a rented pickup truck mowed down pedestrians and cyclists along a busy bike path near the World Trade Center memorial on Oct. 31, killing at least eight and seriously injuring 11.

    The driver was shot in the abdomen by police after jumping out of the truck with what turned out to be a fake gun in each hand and shouting what witnesses said was "Allahu Akbar," Arabic for "God is great," authorities said.

    Officials identified the attacker as 29‐year‐old Sayfullo Saipov and said he is from Uzbekistan and came to the U.S. in 2010.

    The driver barreled along the bike path for about 1.3 kilometers, before slamming into a small yellow school bus. The mayhem and the burst of police gunfire set off panic in the neighborhood.

    "This was an act of terror," Mayor Bill de Blasio said.

    New York and other cities have been on high alert against attacks by extremists in motor vehicles. The Islamic State (IS) group has been exhorting followers to use cars and trucks in attacks.

    Questioned in his hospital bed, Saipov said he had been inspired by IS videos and began plotting an attack about a year ago, deciding to use a truck about two months ago, an FBI agent said.
