New York: Popular Hollywood celebrities like Taylor Swift, Zoe Saldana, Sam Smith and Jared Leto have strongly condemned the attack in Lower Manhattan and paid their condolences to the victims.

Eight persons were killed and 12 injured after a truck ploughed into pedestrians in Lower Manhattan in New York on Tuesday. The suspect has been arrested.

Quantico actress Priyanka Chopra said the attack took place just five blocks away from her house here.
