The driver of a rental truck drove down a busy bicycle path in New York near the World Trade Centre, killing at least eight people and injuring about a dozen others in what officials said was an “act of terror.”

A 29-year-old man who emerged from the white pick-up truck was shot by a police officer and arrested.

The suspect is reported to have screamed “Allahu Akbar” after the crash, and that is a key reason authorities are looking at terrorism as a possible motive, sources said.

The suspect is from the central Asian nation of Uzbekistan and came to the United States in 2010 – CNN.

President Donald Trump tweeted: “My thoughts, condolences and prayers to the victims and families of the New York City terrorist attack. God and your country are with you!”
