US President Donald Trump has called for death penalty to Uzbek national who carried out the Manhattan terror attack which left eight people dead.

A man, who mowed down civilians at Manhattan in a rented truck, was identified as Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov from Uzbekistan.

Five Argentines and one Belgian national are among the eight killed in New York's Lower Manhattan area on Wednesday after a truck mowed down civilians. The incident took place at a bike path on West Street, just a few blocks away from the World Trade Center.

The 29 year old driver was shot by the police after he jumped out of the vehicle. Officials said that the man was screaming and holding fake guns in both hands. Witnesses said that the suspect was shouting Allahu Akbar following the incident.
