Big Facts

The man detained after driving a flatbed truck down a bike lane in Lower Manhattan, N.Y.— killing at least eight and injuring nearly 12—has been identified as 29-year-old Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov.

According to NBC New York, the Uzbek national who lives in News Jersey and drove for Uber left a note in the truck claiming the attack was committed for ISIS. He is thought to be a “lone actor.”  Saipov— who, according to Uber, passed a background test to drive for the service— has been banned from accessing the app after the attack. The company is also reportedly reviewing Saipov’s history and cooperating with the FBI.

Meanwhile, Trump has called for Homeland Security to implement stronger “Extreme Vetting.”

“Another attack by a very sick and deranged person,” he tweeted on Tuesday. “We must not allow ISIS to return, or enter, our country after defeating them in the Middle East and elsewhere.”
