Uber passenger recalls ride with Sayfullo Saipov days before NYC attack

A Southern District of New York grand jury returned a 22-count federal indictment against Sayfullo Saipov, 29, in connection to the Halloween truck terrorist attack on a New York City bike path.

The indictment charged Saipov with eight counts of murder, 12 counts of attempted murder, one count of providing and attempting to provide material support to Islamic State and one count of violence and destruction of a motor vehicle resulting in death, the Justice Department said.

"Like many terrorists before him, Saipov will now face justice in an American court", said Joon H. Kim, acting U.S. Attorney for the southern district of NY, adding that "we expect justice in this case will be swift, firm and resolute".

The indictment includes charges that he provided material support to the Islamic State (ISIS), and also includes a number of offenses that could carry the death penalty if convicted.

Sayfullo Saipov was indicted Tuesday in Manhattan federal court. Saipov was behind the wheel of a rental truck when he crossed into Manhattan from New Jersey over the George Washington Bridge, and then cruised south on the West Side Highway on October 31, prosecutors said. Eight people were killed in the attack and 12 others were injured.
