Islamic State has claimed responsibility for a truck attack in New York City that killed eight people on Tuesday, the group’s online publication said on Thursday, APA reports citing Reuters.

 

Islamic State said in its weekly issue of Al-Naba newspaper that “the attacker is one of the caliphate soldiers”. It did not provide evidence to support its claim.

 

On Tuesday, a man later identified as an Uzbek national Sayfullo Saipov, who reportedly came to the United States in 2010, drove a truck through a bike path in Manhattan, killing eight and injuring 11 others. It is the deadliest act of terror in New York since the 9/11 attacks in 2001.
