At least eight people in New York City have been killed and 11 injured after a driver rammed into cyclists and pedestrians before being shot by police, according to US officials.

The incident “was a particularly cowardly act of terror aimed at innocent civilians”, Bill de Blasio, mayor of New York City, told a news conference.

Police said a 29-year-old male driver of a rented pick-up truck entered a busy bicycle path on the West Side of Lower Manhattan shortly 3:05pm (19:05 GMT), striking a number of people along the route.

The truck then crashed into a school bus, injuring at least two children and two adults.
