A man who had pledged his allegiance to the Islamic State drove a vehicle into pedestrians in Lower Manhattan on Tuesday, killing eight people and injuring 11 others.
The attack occurred near the new World Trade Center building and was the deadliest terrorist attack in New York City since the horrific 9/11 attacks.
According to FoxNews.com, the perpetrator, 29-year-old Sayfullo Saipov, who is not a U.S. citizen and is originally from Uzbekistan, was shot by police and taken into custody.
Following the attack, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio tweeted:
This was a cowardly act of terror. It was intended to break our spirit. But New Yorkers are resilient. We will be undeterred.

Included in the victims of the attack were several Belgian and Argentinian citizens, as well as local teachers and students who were riding in a small school bus when Saipov rammed his Home Depot rental truck into their bus.
Police have officially called the attack an act of terrorism. President Trump also tweeted about the attack:
In NYC, looks like another attack by a very sick and deranged person. Law enforcement is following this closely. NOT IN THE U.S.A.!

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
