    Multiple news outlets have published photos of Sayfullo Saipov, the 29-year-old who allegedly carried out a terror attack in New York on Tuesday, killing eight and wounding at least a dozen.

    "This was an act of terror," Bill de Blasio, mayor of New York, said following a tragic attack in which a truck mowed down pedestrians and bike riders along a popular path in Lower Manhattan. The suspect was shot by police after reportedly waving guns around and shouting "Allahu Akbar," Arabic for "God is great." Officials later recovered a paintball gun and pellet gun from the scene. 

    ​Saipov arrived in the US 2010 from Uzbekistan, published reports suggest, and has been living in Tampa, Florida. According to the man's driver license he was born in February 1988.
