On Tuesday October 31, 2017, eight people died in a terrorist attack in Manhattan, New York. A man in a Home Depot rental truck plowed down a bike path near the Hudson river killing 8 people. 11 people were also injured. The suspect who was driving is Sayfullo Saipov. People think he has something to do with I.S.I.S. He did this to cause terror. According to the NYTimes, he jumped out of the truck, shouted “Allahu akbar”, which means “God is great” in Arabic, and was then shot by a police officer. Our thoughts go out to the victims of this attack.
