The suspect who rammed his car into pedestrians in downtown New York City is said to have made a “statement” after leaving his truck.
During a news conference, Police Commissioner James O’Neill was asked whether the suspect shouted the phrase “Allahu Akbar”, which means “God is great” in Arabic, or something like it
“Yeah. He did make a statement when he exited the vehicle,” Mr O’Neill replied, though he declined to confirm the words used.
“The MO [modus operandi] of the attack is consistent with what has been going on,” he added.
