ISIS Claims Responsibility for NYC Truck Attack, Without Evidence

The terrorist group Islamic State in a newsletter claimed responsibility for the attack in New York City this week that left eight people dead, although it provided no evidence to back up the claim.
     The terrorist group, also known as ISIS, made the claim in its al-Naba newsletter. The newsletter refers to the suspected attacker as a "soldier of the Islamic State," according to security consulting firm and NBC News partner Flashpoint Intelligence.
     The suspect in Tuesday's truck rampage in Manhattan, 29-year-old Uzbek national Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, told investigators he was inspired to carry out the truck attack by ISIS videos he had watched on his phone, according to a criminal complaint. Law enforcement sources have said it appeared Saipov acted alone.Saipov, who came to the United States in 2010, used a rented truck to run down people on a bike path along the West Side Highway in lower Manhattan, police have said. He was shot and wounded by police, and on Wednesday was charged with two federal counts.
     Saipov told investigators he had become radicalized by watching ISIS videos on his phone and was inspired by ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi's call for revenge on the United States, the federal complaint says.
