When the world was busy donning costumes mimicking their favourite characters, the New York terror attack took place blocks away from actress Priyanka Chopra's house. Eight persons were killed and 12 injured after a truck ploughed into pedestrians in Lower Manhattan in New York yesterday. The suspect has been arrested.

The actress, who is in New York shooting for Quantico season 3, said, the attack in Lower Manhattan took place just five blocks away from her house here. “This happened five blocks from my home. As I drive back home from work, dreary sirens remind me that this is the state of the world. NYC. Peace,” Priyanka, who keeps juggling between India and the US, tweeted today.

Priyanka also paid her condolences to the victims of the tragedy.

“NYC. As resilient as ever. I love you. My condolences to everyone affected by this tragedy,” she tweeted.
