ISIS claims responsibility for Manhattan terrorist attack, no evidence given

ISIS claims responsibility for Manhattan terrorist attack, no evidence given

Saipov told USA officials he was proud of killing eight people and injuring at least 11 others, and he also requested an IS flag be put up in his hospital room. Prosecutors announced federal terrorism charges against Saipov late Wednesday, which means he can get the death penalty if convicted - even though NY state has no death penalty.

Outside court, Saipov's attorney said he hoped "everyone lets the judicial process play out".

Saipov left behind knives and a note, in Arabic and English, in the truck that included Islamic religious references and said, "Islamic Supplication. It will endure." The phrase "it will endure" commonly refers to the Islamic State group, and Saipov had a cellphone loaded with the group's propaganda, an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent said in the criminal complaint.

USA law enforcement officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because the investigation was continuing, told Reuters that Saipov had been in contact with Kadirov and another person of interest in the investigation.

According to the Washington Post, federal authorities said the 29-year-old told them he has been plotting his attack for a year and decided on using a truck two months ago.

Eight people died in the attack, five of them childhood friends from Argentina celebrating 30 years since their high school graduation, a 31-year-old Belgian mother and two men, from NY and neighbouring New Jersey.

During the last few weeks, Saipov searched the internet for information on Halloween in New York City and rented a truck to practice turns.

Also, if you are around children under two or adults older than 65, you should get the shot to better protect them from the flu. Clinicians and pharmacists who give vaccines day in and day out have the skill to make the shots nearly painless.

A police officer shot Saipov after he exited the truck brandishing paintball and pellet guns.

Trump's tweets calling for the death penalty for Saipov before Saipov even had a chance to enter a plea to the charges he faces could work to the defense's advantage by giving his lawyers a chance to argue they prejudiced potential jurors.

DONALD Trump has vowed to hit ISIS "ten times harder" as he blasted the "degenerate animal" behind the NY truck massacre. "Should move fast. DEATH PENALTY!"

Saipov has been charged with providing material support and resources to a foreign terrorist organization and violence and destruction of motor vehicles.

Saipov told investigators that he chose Tuesday to attack, because it was Halloween, and he expected more people to be out in public. Saipov worked as a truck driver, and for the ride-sharing companies Uber and Lyft in recent years.

Trump also has called for eliminating the 1990s visa lottery program that Saipov used to come to the U.S.in 2010.
