Nadella, Pichai condemn terror attack in New York
Satya Nadella and Sundar Pichai, the India-born CEOs of tech giants Microsoft and Google, today decried the New York terror attack, describing the incident as a "horrific act of violence" which claimed eight lives.
A 29-year-old Uzbek man, allegedly inspired by the ISIS, today ploughed a pickup truck down a crowded bike-only path in lower Manhattan, in the deadliest terrorist attack in the New York City since September 11, 2001.
At least eight people were killed and 11 others injured in the attack, while the suspect was arrested.
"Our hearts and thoughts are with the victims, their loved ones, and all those in New York City impacted by this horrific act of violence," Nadella, 50, tweeted.
The CEO of the Microsoft Corporation, who is originally from Hyderabad in India, now lives in Washington.
"So sad to see the senseless loss of lives in NYC, thoughts and prayers with everyone affected there. Gratitude to NYPD, FDNY and first responders there #NYCStrong," Pichai posted on Twitter.
The Tamil Nadu-born Pichai, 45, was named the Google chief executive officer in 2015.
Apple CEO Tim Cook also condoled the loss of lives in the attack.
"Tonight our hearts are with the victims, their families and all the people of New York. Stay safe and stay strong," Cook, 56, tweeted.
