Blow-by-blow account of the New York City Terror Attack

Blow-by-blow account of the New York City Terror Attack

Hours after a suspected terrorist drove a truck into a crowded bike path in lower Manhattan, killing at least eight people and injuring 11 more, New Yorkers - young and old - poured into city streets to celebrate Halloween in a defiant stand against violence and fear. The driver killed at least eight and injured nearly a dozen others before hitting a school bus and exiting the auto, leading to his capture after an officer shot him in the stomach.

The FBI and NYPD are now treating the incident as an act of terror.

Cuomo calls the driver a "depraved coward", and says the attack "did not instill terror" among hardy New Yorkers.

The parade stepped off Tuesday evening about a mile (1.6 kilometers) from where a truck mowed down pedestrians and cyclists on a busy bike path hours earlier. The driver is in critical condition after police shot him in the abdomen. "If we change our lives, if we contort ourselves to them, then they win and we lose". De Blasio and Governor Andrew Cuomo made an appearance in the parade as well, marching a few blocks up near 14th Street.

Kabul bomb blast: Explosion in embassy zone causes multiple casualties
A suicide bomber reportedly detonated an explosive device inside Kabul's 'Green Zone' in the vicinity of the Australian embassy. The last major assault in Kabul was on October 21 when a suicide attacker hit a busload of Afghan army trainees, killing 15.

The parade will kick off at 7 p.m. under heightened security.

De Blasio said that he supports vetting individuals applying to immigrate to the United States, but not special scrutiny for groups of people "just because they belong to a group".
