Georgian PM, President commented over Manhattan terrorist act


Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Kvrikashvili released a statement about Manhattan terror attack through Twitter. “We are shocked and deeply concerned. Our prayers are directed to victims and their family members,” reads the statement. 

President of Georgia Giorgi Margvelashvili said that Georgia condemned any form of terrorism and stayed together with the international community in fight against the threat. “On behalf of Georgian people, I express support to US government and American people,” reads the statement. 

Eight people were killed and 11 injured when the driver of the truck hit people on a cycle path in Lower Manhattan. Five Argentines were among the dead. A 29-year-old man was shot by police as he left the car, and detained. 

Media named him as Sayfullo Saipov, an Uzbek immigrant who came to the US in 2010. US President Donald Trump has ordered the Department of Homeland Security to "step up" vetting measures, after a deadly truck attack in New York.
