The President of the United States Donald trump in his Twitter wrote that advocates the death penalty for 29-year-old native of Uzbekistan, Saipov Saifulla, October 31, have committed a terrorist act in new York.
“New York terrorist, with pleasure asked me to hang the flag of the “Islamic state” (IG banned in Russia as a terrorist organization — approx. “Of the tape.ru”) in his hospital room. He killed eight people, seriously wounded another 12. HE SHOULD GET THE DEATH PENALTY!” — said the President of the United States.
Earlier it was reported that Saipov was charged with terrorism. He faces life imprisonment or the death penalty. Also found out that Saipov had intended to crush even more people crossing the Brooklyn bridge. He was going to hang the flags of the “Islamic state” on the front and rear of the truck, but was afraid to do it because it could attract too much attention.
On Wednesday it became known that Saipov have chosen the date October 31 terrorist attack specifically because it was expected that by Halloween he will have the opportunity to kill as many children as possible.
As of 1 November became known the details of the interrogation Saipov, conducted by investigators at the hospital. Security officers told me that he’s completely unrepentant, and virtually bragging about the crime. It is noted that the man did not come to the attention of US law enforcement.
Tuesday was driving a rented truck Saipov deliberately made arrival on pedestrians in new York and collided with a school bus carrying disabled children. Ran out of the cabin, the man with the words “Allahu Akbar!” began to shoot at people. In the result, 8 people died and another 12 were injured.
Hitting was carried out near the skyscraper One World Trade Center. It is built near the place where were the twin towers destroyed in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
