The charging document said the Uber driver and father-of-three, who emigrated in March 2010, confessed to acting in the name of the Islamic State (IS) group and "felt good about what he had done", even demanding to hang the jihadist organization's flag in his hospital room.

Tuesday's assault was the deadliest in New York City since September 11, 2001, when suicide hijackers crashed two jetliners into the World Trade Center, killing more than 2,600 people.

Investigators work around the wreckage of a Home Depot pickup truck a day after it was used in a terror attack in NY on November 1, 2017.

Saipov was shot after he stepped out of the truck after attacking pedestrians.

The criminal complaint against Saipov alleges that he was inspired by IS.

Sen. Lindsay Graham, a Republican, on Thursday repeated his criticism of the Justice Department for charging Saipov in the courts rather than treating him as an enemy combatant. Prosecutors announced federal terrorism charges against Saipov late Wednesday, which means he can get the death penalty if convicted - even though NY state has no death penalty.

According to the Washington Post, federal authorities said the 29-year-old told them he has been plotting his attack for a year and decided on using a truck two months ago.

During the past few weeks, Saipov searched the internet for information on Halloween in New York City and for truck rentals, the agent says.

President Donald Trump called for the man to be executed.

"He appears to have followed nearly exactly to a T, the instructions that ISIS has put out on its social-media channels to its followers", New York Deputy Police Commissioner John Miller said at a press conference.

Trump tweeted, "Would love to send the NYC terrorist to Guantanamo but statistically that process takes much longer than going through the Federal system".

The charges included providing material support to ISIS, violence and destruction of motor vehicles said Joon H. Kim, the acting U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of NY.

He also said the alleged killer should face the death penalty. The plan was carried out on Halloween because he believed there would be more people on the street, investigators said.

Saipov is a legal resident of the United States and came to U.S. in 2010 from Uzbekistan.

The New York Times reported that he was a university-educated accountant from a well-off family who won the green card lottery and moved to OH, with dreams of prospering, before eventually being forced to find work as a trucker.
