ISIS Claims Responsibility for NYC Truck Attack

Suspect Lived in New Jersey Off and on for Years

The Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) newsletter, Naba, calls Saipov a "soldier of the caliphate", according to the SITE Intelligence Group. The two fake guns Saipov was allegedly carrying were identified as a paintball gun and a pellet gun.

Saipov is the fourth Uzbek-linked man in less than a year blamed for deadly strikes overseas, following attacks in Istanbul, St Petersburg and Stockholm. His hands and feet were chained, and five guards stood behind him.

Handcuffed and with his legs shackled, Saipov nodded his head as he was read his rights in a brief court proceeding that he followed through a Russian interpreter.

Saipov has been charged with providing material support and resources to a foreign terrorist organization and violence and destruction of motor vehicles.

Saipov reportedly admitted to watching IS videos on his cell phone, before mowing down people on a bike path in the Manhattan neighborhood of Tribeca in New York City on Tuesday. Trump said there was something "appropriate" about keeping Saipov where he committed the crime, and tweeted, "Should move fast". Saipov did not enter a plea and was ordered held without bail. Saipov mowed down bikers and pedestrians along a one-mile stretch of the West Side Highway, then exited the vehicle after hitting a school bus. Saipov told U.S. officials he was proud of killing eight people and injuring at least 11 others, and he also requested an IS flag be put up in his hospital room. The Arabic portion of the note said "No God but God and Muhammad is his Prophet" and "Islamic Supplication". "It will endure" commonly refers to ISIS, Tyree said.

Trump says recalls little about meeting where aide mentioned Russian Federation
And people were asking him about this meeting back in 2016 where former campaign aide George Papadopoulos was present. President Trump is weighing in on the latest Russian Federation revelations.

He was found in possession of multiple knives in a black bag, a Florida driving licence and two cellphones that contained thousands of IS propaganda images and dozens of IS propaganda videos, Kim said.

Asked by reporters whether he thought Saipov should be executed if convicted, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said he categorically opposes the death penalty.

In the largely Muslim neighbourhood where Saipov lived with his wife and children for little over a year in the New Jersey town of Paterson, residents seethed with anger on Wednesday that he had besmirched their hard-working immigrant reputation.

"NYC terrorist was happy as he asked to hang ISIS flag in his hospital room".

After the hearing, Saipov's court-appointed lawyer said he hoped people would let "the judicial process play out", adding, "I promise you that how we treat Mr. Saipov in this judicial process will say a lot more about us than it will say about him".
