USA: Concrete blocks fortify Manhattan bike path in wake of deadly attack

Large concrete blocks were placed alongside the bike lane to protect cyclists in New York City's lower Manhattan, Friday, days after a driver mowed a truck into pedestrians on Tuesday claiming the lives of eight people. People have placed flowers, balloons, photos of the victims and other personal items in honour of their memory, around the place where the attack occurred. A New York City... Еще resident said she is «grateful» that «more lives were not lost.» «We are vulnerable, it doesn't matter where you live, if you live in Ney York, if you live in any big city or small town, you know, terrorism is everywhere and so you just don't know,» another resident said. The New York Police Department (NYPD) resorted to placing hundreds of concrete blocks at 57 intersections along the Hudson River Park Bikeway in a measure to avoid future attacks. The tragic incident occurred when a driver mowed a truck into pedestrians on Tuesday afternoon. The suspect, a 29-year-old man named Sayfullo Saipov, was shot in the stomach and taken into custody. He has recently been filed with terror charges.
