The man suspected of killing eight people in New York by driving a truck down a cycle lane was inspired by the Islamic State (IS) group, police say.
New York Police’s Deputy Commissioner John Miller said that notes in Arabic claiming the attack on behalf of IS were recovered from the scene in Lower Manhattan.

The suspect, Sayfullo Saipov, 29, is an Uzbek immigrant, and was shot and injured by police.
He is in hospital and under arrest.
Mr Miller said the suspect had closely followed IS instructions from social media on how to carry out such an assault.
It appears that Mr Saipov had been planning this for a number of weeks,” said Mr Miller. “He did this in the name of Isis,” he added, an alternative name for IS.
It was the deadliest terror attack in the city since 11 September, 2001, BBC reports.
