New York City terror attack 'carried out in the name of Islamic State', police say



The terror attack which claimed the lives of eight people in New York City was carried out "in the name of ISIS", police say.
 
NYPD deputy commissioner of counterterrorism John Miller said it appeared suspect Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov planned the truck rampage for several weeks.


He added that as well as being found with two imitation firearms and "multiple knives", the 29-year-old Uzbek national left handwritten notes at the scene which said "Islamic State will endure forever".


Saipov has never before been the subject of an NYPD or FBI investigation but "has some connectivity" with subjects under investigation, Mr Miller said.
