Five Argentinian high school students, two young American men and a Belgian mother were identified by the police as victims of the attack. Yesterday was a painful day for our city. We are keeping victims and their families in our thoughts and prayers, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio wrote Wednesday on Twitter.

We will be undeterred.— Bill de Blasio @BilldeBlasio November 1, 2017 The incident is being investigated as an act of terror. You have to understand that this investigation is still in its infancy, NYPD Police Commissioner James P. ONeill said in a Wednesday press conference. We do not yet have all of the answers, and there are details today, and there will be more down the road — and not everything were going to be able to share with you. ONeill  added, We are working hard to get to the bottom of exactly what happened yesterday, and why. And were working tirelessly to prevent anything like this from getting repeated. President Donald Trump also confirmed Tuesday that his administration would provide its full support to the NYPD and FBIs joint investigation. Saipov came to the U.S. in 2010 from Uzbekistan. The Department of Homeland Security claimed that Saipov was on a diversity immigrant visa, which is a program intended to give up to 50,000 individuals annually a green card. These visas are awarded randomly to encourage immigration in territories that aren’t heavily represented in America. Saipov, a former Uber driver, was not present on any U.S. terrorism watch lists prior to Tuesdays attack. He was initially believed to have acted alone.  The crashed vehicle used in what is being described as a terrorist attack sits in lower Manhattan the morning after the event on November 1, 2017 in New York City.
