Eight people are dead and 11 have been injured after a truck mounted a bicycle path in lower Manhattan on Tuesday afternoon, mowing down cyclists and runners for 17 blocks, then reportedly shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’.

The 29-year-old driver, named by insiders as Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, entered the bicycle path at Houston Street at 3.05pm and drove downtown, knocking down victims before smashing into a school bus at at Chambers Street.

Two children and two adults on the bus were injured; they and seven other people are now in hospital. One of the children on the bus is in critical condition. Police say others who self-evacuated from the scene may have been injured.

After coming to a stop in his rented Home Depot truck, the terrorist then emerged from waving a paintball gun in one hand and a pellet gun in the other.

He was shot in the stomach by an on-duty NYPD officer who was at the scene. He is now out of surgery and remains under police supervision.

At a press conference at Police Plaza later, New York Mayor Bill De Blasio condemned the attack as a ‘cowardly act of terror’.
