Eight killed by man driving truck New York attack


At least eight people have been killed in New York after the driver of a truck mowed down people on a cycle path in Lower Manhattan.

A man who emerged from the vehicle brandishing imitation guns was shot by a police officer and arrested.
Police urged people to avoid the area as a major emergency services operation got under way.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said it was "a cowardly act of terror aimed at innocent civilians".
