Five friends celebrating reunion among eight killed in New York terror attack”

Five of the men were killed in the terrorist attack that left eight dead and 11 others injured on Halloween after a truck rammed into people on a bike path before slamming into a school bus several blocks from the World Trade Center memorial, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Worship of the Argentine Republic confirmed Tuesday night.

They are namely, Hernan Mendoza, Diego Angelini, Alejandro Pagnucco, Ariel Erlij and Hernan Ferruchi. Hernán Mendoza, Diego Angelini, Alejandro Pagnucco, Ariel Erlij and Hernán Ferruch as well as Martín Ludovico Marro, who was injured, were all in NY celebrating their 30 year graduation reunion.

The government said a sixth member of the group sustained injuries and is being treated in the Presbyterian Hospital of Manhattan. A Belgian man was also killed.

The driver is in critical condition after police shot him in the abdomen.

Belgium's deputy prime minister Didier Reynders said a Belgian also died in the attack. The attack was reported on a lower Manhattan bike path.

The 29-year-old suspect had been working as an Uber driver after passing a background check, according to a spokeswoman for the app.

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson echoed her statement, adding: "We will not give in to terror". "We accompany the families in this awful moment of deep pain, which all Argentines share".

New York City mayor Bill de Blasio described the attack as "a particularly cowardly act of terror" and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said it was perpetrated by a "lone wolf". "My thoughts are with the families of the deceased and prayers with those injured".

President Donald Trump, who has curbed the number of migrants entering the United States, swiftly declared that the USA "must not" allow Islamic State jihadists to "return, or enter, our country after defeating them" overseas.
