Islamic State takes responsibility for NYC attack; security increased

Sources Associated Press Times reporting

And after his trail of terror was halted by a police bullet, he asked to display the Islamic State flag in his hospital room, saying "he felt good about what he had done", authorities said.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the surviving member of a pair of ethnic Chechen brothers who killed three people and injured more than 260 when they bombed the 2013 Boston Marathon in an attack inspired by the al Qaeda militant group, was sentenced to death in 2015.

Investigators work around the wreckage of a Home Depot pickup truck a day after it was used in a terror attack in NY on November 1, 2017.

Eight people died in the attack, five of them childhood friends from Argentina celebrating 30 years since their high school graduation, a 31-year-old Belgian mother and two men, from NY and neighbouring New Jersey.

"I'm not someone who believes in the death penalty in general, I just don't", de Blasio told a news conference near the site of Saipov's attack.

Saipov appeared in a wheelchair before a United States magistrate in Manhattan federal court, where the charges were formally read.

Federal Bureau of Investigation officials said Saipov waived his Miranda rights and said he "felt good about what he had done", the complaint said.

Sayfullo Saipov, the suspect in the New York City truck attack, is seen in this courtroom sketch appearing in Manhattan federal courtroom.

'Double standards' will only undermine efforts to combat terror
All other 14 countries of the 15-member security council supported the move by the United States and France, news agency PTI said. Security Council, has repeatedly put a technical hold on the Indian request citing a lack of consensus, a claim India rejects.

He started planning the attack about a year ago while in the USA - and two months ago, he made a decision to use a truck.

Outside court, Saipov's attorney said he hoped "everyone lets the judicial process play out".

In the past few years, the Islamic State group has exhorted followers online to use vehicles, knives or other close-at-hand means of killing people in their home countries.

Trump's tweets calling for the death penalty for Saipov before Saipov even had a chance to enter a plea to the charges he faces could work to the defense's advantage by giving his lawyers a chance to argue they prejudiced potential jurors. "Every time they hit us, we know it is ISIS, we hit them like you won't believe", he said. "Should move fast. DEATH PENALTY!"

By afternoon, though, Saipov was in federal court facing charges that include providing material support to a terrorist group.

Trump also has called for eliminating the 1990s visa lottery program that Saipov used to come to the U.S.in 2010.

Of those killed on Tuesday, five were Argentine tourists, who were among a group of friends visiting NY to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their high school graduation, one was a Belgian citizen, one was a NY resident and one lived in New Jersey.
