DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. May 18, 2017, 7:59 PM (IDT)

One person was killed and 12 people were injured when a car mowed down pedestrians in New York’s Times Square shortly before noon on Thursday. A video showed what appears to be the driver being arrested by police. The smoking vehicle was seen leaning against a barrier on the sidewalk. The police cordoned off the area. A US official told Reuters that there is no evidence that the incident was linked to terrorism.  

Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
