ISIS has claimed, without evidence, that Tuesday’s attack in New York City was carried out by a “soldier of the caliphate.” The attack left eight people dead, after suspect Sayfullo Saipov, an Uzbek native, reportedly drove a rented Home Depot truck down a bike path along Manhattan’s Hudson River, killing multiple people before crashing into a school bus. He was then shot and wounded by police. Authorities claim Sayfullo Saipov has said, at his hospital bedside, that ISIS videos inspired him to carry out the attack.
