President Donald Trump on Wednesday ordered for robust "extreme vetting" of travellers coming into the United States. This is the first major attack after the deadly attack in New York on September 11, 2001. At least eight people were killed and 11 others injured in Lower Manhattan today after a gunman in a truck plowed through a busy bike path, an incident the US termed as an "act of terrorism". The suspect, 29-year-old Sayfullo Saipov said to be from Uzbekistan, was shot in the stomach before being arrested. His administration announced last week that it would resume accepting refugees after a 120-day ban, though arrivals from 11 "high-risk" countries, most of them home to Muslim majorities, will still be blocked.
