WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The New York terror suspect Sayfullo Saipov is unapologetic for carrying out Tuesday's terrorist attack that killed eight, CBS News reported citing unnamed sources.
Saipov reportedly bragged to police about the attack he carried out in the name of Daesh terror group and said he is pleased with the attack and would have continued to drive into more pedestrians if he had not crashed into the school bus.
The NYPD said earlier in the day the Uzbek national had prepared the attack for weeks, adding that police have found notes in the vehicle of the suspected attacker in Arabic that allegedly said that Daesh "will endure forever."
According to Andrew Cuomo, governor of New York state, the suspect, who came to the US in 2010, was "radicalized domestically."
The truck-ramming attack in Manhattan that has claimed the lives of eight people, most of them foreigners is the deadliest act of terror in New York since the 9/11 attacks in 2001.
