New York Attack: Cowardice Attack On Humanity – PM Najib

KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak has labelled the deadly terrorist attack in New York City on Tuesday, in which a man driving a pickup truck mowed down people on a cycle path in Lower Manhattan, as a cowardly attack on humanity.

"My thoughts & prayers for New York City. Innocent lives were lost today.

"We stand together against cowardly attacks on humanity," he said in his twitter account today.

According to media reports, at least eight people were killed and 11 others seriously injured in the attack. A 29-year-old man from Uzbekistan, believed to be the driver of the truck, was shot by police and taken into custody.
