China has condemned Tuesday’s terror attack in New York, saying the country will work with the international community to combat terrorism.

Eight people were killed and a dozen injured after a truck plowed into pedestrians and cyclists on a busy bike path in lower Manhattan.

Speaking at a press conference in Beijing, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said that China noted that mayor of New York, Bill de Blasio, called the attack an "act of terror."

"Terrorism is the common enemy of mankind and China opposes all forms of terrorism and advocates international cooperation to fight against it," Hua said.

Hua also extended condolences to the victims' families.
