NYC Responds to Terrorist Attack: Interfaith Vigil


Hundreds of New Yorkers came together for an interfaith vigil to remember the eight people killed and the 12 injured during the NYC terrorist truck attack.

Religious leaders from around the city urged the crowd to spread love and denounced the terror suspect and others who commit violence for religious purposes.

Manhattan Borough President Gail Brewer said the tragedy should not be used as a “political opportunity” or to allow bigotry to rise.

The Empire State Building went dark in remembrance of those who lost their lives in the attack.

Federal prosecutors filed charges accusing the attacker of carrying out a long-planned plot, spurred by Islamic State propaganda videos, to kill people.
