8 Dead After Rental Truck Drives Into Bicycles And School Bus Near World Trade Center

UPDATE 8:03 P.M. EST: The suspect has been identified as Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov. Law enforcement officials say the man moved to the States from Uzbekistan in 2010. He has lived in Ohio, Florida, and, most recently, New Jersey. According to officials, he has a wife and three children.


At least eight people are dead with more injured after an apparent act of terrorism near the site of the 9/11 attack.

According to reports, a 29-year-old man rented a Home Depot truck and drove it into a busy bicycle path in Lower Manhattan, near the site of the World Trade Center.

He drove for at least 10 blocks, hitting a dozen people.

Witnesses say they saw him swerve to hit a "special ed" school bus that was carrying three children, scream "allahu akbar," then exit the vehicle carrying what's being called "imitation firearms" (possibly BB or paint guns).

Police responded and shot the driver, who was then brought to the hospital.

The death toll is currently eight; no word yet on whether any were the schoolchildren.

The mode of attack and statement by the driver have already led authorities to refer to the incident as a terror attack; Mayor Bill de Blasio called the incident a "particularly cowardly act of terror aimed at innocent civilians." See his and Governor Andrew Cuomo's remarks (below):

Barcelona Attack Update: Massive House Explosion Miles Away Believed To Be Related

Filed under: ViolenceViral: News

At least 13 are dead at last count after the devastating attack in Barcelona on Thursday, in which a small group of attackers drove a van into a crowded area.

But the death toll may be even higher as a fatal bomb blast on Wednesday night has now been linked to the attack.

Police say one person was killed and at least seven were injured in the explosion, which destroyed one house and damaged all the adjacent ones.

The house was in a residential area in Alcanor, about 120 miles south of Barcelona. Officials say the explosion was caused by butane gas, of which around 20 bottles were found in the wreckage — far more gas than what a normal house could use.

Circumstances around this explosion have not yet been confirmed, but experts are currently speculating based on the amount of gas that this was part of a larger bomb attack plan, and that it may have gone wrong.

These people just want to ruin life for everyone.

Sadly, we must report that yet another concert has apparently been targeted by terrorists.

Over 80,000 audience members were evacuated when the Rock am Ring festival in Nürburg, Germany, had to suspend activities over what police called "concrete indications" of a "possible terrorist threat."

Terror In London: Get The Latest On The Westminster Attack

UPDATE 7:12 P.M. EST: Unfortunately, police are now reporting a fifth person has died as a result of their wounds.

Authorities have also now officially released the name of the hero policeman who died protecting Parliament: Keith Palmer, a husband and father who'd been an officer for 15 years.

PM May thanked the "exceptional men and women" of the police force; she added:

"The location of this attack was no accident. The terrorist chose to strike at the heart of our capital city where people of all nationalities, religions and cultures come together to celebrate the values of liberty, democracy and freedom of speech."

The number of injured has also risen; police now say over 40 in all.


One year to the day after the deadly suicide bombings in Brussels, another act of terrorism has taken innocent lives.

Four are confirmed dead after a man drove a large vehicle into pedestrian traffic on Westminster Bridge in London. Two were killed by the vehicle; at least 20 others were injured, including three young students who were visiting from France.

After crashing into the railing, the driver, armed with a knife, abandoned the vehicle and tried to get into Westminster Abbey — where the U.K. Parliament convenes.

A police officer blocked his way and was stabbed; he later died of his wounds.

The assailant was reportedly then shot by police before he could make it into the building. Lawmakers inside Westminster were put on lockdown for over two hours as a precautionary measure.

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley of the National Counter-Intelligence Service addressed reporters with a full rundown of the tragic events:
