Eight people have been murdered by a Muslim terrorist who mowed them down on a bike path in lower Manhattan on Tuesday before getting out of his car screaming ‘allahu akbar.’
The terrorist made his way from Houston Street down towards Tribeca where he mounted the bike path on the West Side Highway shortly after 3pm a few blocks north of Chambers Street.
After striking several cyclists and runners, he came to a stop when his truck crashed into a school bus beneath the Tribeca bridge.
The Muslim terrorist then emerged with imitation guns in his hand and was shot in the leg by police. He survived and was taken to hospital but at least seven innocent people were killed and others are injured.
The FBI and NYPD are now treating the attack as an act of terror. Witnesses and law enforcement officials said the terrorist shouted ‘allahu akbar’ during the terror attack.
In August, a pro-ISIS Telegram channel posted a photo close to the area of the Lower Manhattan terror attack.
