FBI no longer seeking 2nd man in connection with truck attack

- Federal authorities are no longer looking for another man in relation to the investigation of a truck attack in Lower Manhattan. The FBI had released a poster seeking information about Mukhammadzoir Kadirov, 32, of Uzbekistan. But a short time later, a federal official said at a news conference that the FBI found Kadirov.

Authorities on Wednesday charged Sayfullo Saipov, a New Jersey resident originally from Uzbekistan, with providing material support to a terrorist group and committing violence and destruction of motor vehicles.

Police said Saipov on Tuesday drove a rental truck almost a mile along a recreational path, killing eight pedestrians and cyclists. An NYPD cop then shot and wounded him.

Anyone with information about Saipov or this case can contact the FBI's toll-free tip line at 800-CALL-FBI (1-800-225-5324), the local FBI office, or the nearest U.S. Embassy or U.S. Consulate.
