New York terror suspect planned attack for weeks, police say

New York terror attack suspect Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov “did this in the name of ISIS,” said John Miller, NYPD deputy commissioner for intelligence and counter-terrorism.

Saipov had been planning the attack for a “number of weeks,” Miller said, and appeared to have followed instructions ISIS has put out on how to carry out such attacks.

He said a handwritten note in Arabic found near the scene had both symbols and words, but the gist was that the Islamic State would endure forever.
