On Tuesday afternoon, eight people were killed and at least 11 were injured when a truck plowed into pedestrian and then hit a school bus, very close to the World Trade Center memorial site.
New York City Major, Bill de Blasio, said the incident was an “act of terror” at a press conference. A police source says the suspect shouted “Allahu Akbar,” and NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill said the suspect made a statement when he exited his vehicle.
Stars from the music world to Hollywood and politic were quick to voice their concern for the citizen of New York and offer their support and condolences following the terror attack. These are some of their messages.
