Initial reports: A truck mowed down people at a bike lane in lower Manhattan. A school bus was involved (possibly, the driver drove into the truck to prevent it from continuing.
At least 6 dead and 15 injured.
Reports – not confirmed, let’s remember-that the driver (who has been captured) screamed “allahu akbar” as the carnage took place.
More as it becomes available.
Remember: initial reports are almost always inaccurate. Let’s all wait before we jump to conclusions.
UPDATE: The death toll now stands at 8. Unknown number of injured. And, yes, it appears virtually certain that this was a terrorist attack.
