ROUGH CUT - SUBTITLED (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Argentina's President Mauricio Macri said on Wednesday (November 01) he lamented the death of five Argentines from the city of Rosario in the attack in New York a day earlier. "They were five young entrepreneurs, model citizens in Rosario society," he said at the opening of an event in Buenos Aires. "We all must stand together in the fight against terrorism." Argentina's foreign ministry released the names of the five dead late on Tuesday (October 31) and said they were visiting New York as part of a group of friends celebrating the 30th anniversary of their high school graduation. A sixth member of the group was among those hospitalized after a man driving a rented pickup truck mowed down pedestrians and cyclists on a bike path alongside the Hudson River, killing eight people and injuring about a dozen. The municipality of Rosario, a city of 1.3 million on the banks of the Parana River in northern Argentina, declared three days of mourning, the city's mayor Monica Fein said on Twitter.
