New York truck attack: Five Argentine friends killed
Five friends from Argentina were among those killed in a truck attack in New York on Tuesday. Eight people were killed and 11 injured when the driver of the truck hit people on a cycle path in Lower Manhattan. A 29-year-old man, reported to be an Uzbek immigrant, was shot and injured by police as he left the vehicle. US President Donald Trump has ordered the Department of Homeland Security to "step up" vetting measures in the wake of the attack. The suspect reportedly shouted "Allahu Akbar" ("God is greatest") as he left the truck. Officials said it was a terror attack - the deadliest in the city since the 11 September attacks. A note was found in the truck that referred to so-called Islamic State, law enforcement sources were quoted as saying by US media.
Who were the victims?
The deaths of the five Argentines were confirmed by the country's foreign ministry. They were part of a group of 10 friends in New York to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their graduation from a polytechnic college in the central city of Rosario, Argentine media said.
