Argentina is mourning the five argentine tourists who were killed in Tuesday’s attack in Manhattan. The Argentine consul in New York, Mateo Estreme, expressed profound sadness for the victim’s families. The group was celebrating the 30th anniversary of their high school graduation when they were mowed down by a driver. A candlelight vigil was held at their high school Wednesday where hundreds gathered together to remember the victims.
Investigators were still on the scene late Tuesday gathering evidence after the latest in a series of deadly terror attacks using vehicles. The attacker Sayfulloh Saipov, a 29-year-old immigrant from Uzbekistan, drove his rented Home Depot truck directly onto a popular bike path on the west side of Manhattan in an apparent ISIS-inspired lone wolf attack. Officials say six people died at the scene with two more later succumbing to their injuries at the hospital.
