New York terror attack: It seems nowhere is safe these days and terror attacks are becoming ubiquitous. Today, according to the BBC, at least six people have been killed in New York after the driver of a truck mowed down people on a cycle path in Lower Manhattan.
A man who emerged from the vehicle brandishing imitation guns was shot and arrested by police officers.
Police urged people to avoid the area as a major emergency services operation got under way.
US police describe the incident as a terror attack, with reports saying the FBI is now leading the investigation.
The suspect is in custody. This is preliminary, more information to follow.
