Republican senator: Alleged New York attacker should be held as enemy combatant

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham on Wednesday said the suspect in Tuesday’s truck attack in New York City that left eight people dead should be held as an enemy combatant in order to gather intelligence.

Graham is scheduled to hold a news conference at 11:30 a.m. (1530 GMT) calling for such a move, which would allow the alleged attacker to be questioned without a lawyer present, his office said in a statement.
