A man who killed 8 bicyclists in Manhattan is convicted and may face the death penalty


A group pauses in 2017, with some in prayer, at a makeshift memorial on a New York City bike path that that honors victims of an attack who were stuck and killed by a rental truck driven by Sayfullo Saipov. The Islamic extremist was convicted of federal crimes on Thursday and could face the death penalty.

Sayfullo Saipov was found guilty of running down riders with a rental truck on a Manhattan bike path in 2017. Prosecutors said the Halloween attack was inspired by his reverence for the Islamic State.
