US Law Enforcement Hunting Second Person of Interest in NYC Truck Attack

Uzbekistan Offers Aid, Sympathy In Terror Attack Probe

A second Uzbek man wanted for questioning in the investigation of Tuesday's fatal truck attack in New York City has been located, an FBI official said on Wednesday, though no details were provided on where the man was found or why he was wanted.

The FBI had released a poster seeking information about Mukhammadzoir Kadirov, 32, of Uzbekistan.

CBS News reported on Wednesday that investigators became suspicious of Kadirov and flagged him as a person of interest on social media because he "went off the radar" when they tried to speak with him.

Federal prosecutors in NY have filed terrorism charges against an Uzbek immigrant in the deadly truck attack on a NY bike path.

Like Sayfullo Saipov, the suspected perpetrator of the attack, Mr Kadirov is a national of Uzbekistan.

The second man was identified as Mukhammadzoir Kadirov, also know as Muhammad.

At least eight people were killed and 11 other injured in Lower Manhattan on Wednesday after a gunman in a truck plowed through a busy bike path, an incident the United States termed as an "act of terrorism". It's unclear what relationship Saipov has with Kadirov.

A man accused of driving a truck down a bike path near the World Trade Center and killing eight people has been taken into court in a wheelchair.

Saipov allegedly said he began planning the attack approximately two months ago.

Uzbek immigrant Sayfullo Saipov appeared in the NY federal courthouse Wednesday handcuffed and with his feet shackled.

Police had released an appeal for the man and urged members of the public with information about him to contact the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
