FBI Locate Second Man They Were Seeking Information On In Connection To Deadly New York City Truck Attack

NEW YORK (CBS/AP) — The FBI has located a second man they were seeking information on in connection with a deadly truck attack on a bike path near the World Trade Center.

The bureau on Wednesday issued a poster saying it is seeking the public’s help with information about 32-year-old Mukhammadzoir Kadirov.

The FBI later tweeted that Kadirov has been located and are still looking for any information the public may have on him.

The poster says he was born in Uzbekistan. So was 29-year-old Sayfullo Saipov, who was charged Wednesday with providing material support to a terrorist group and violence and destruction of motor vehicles. Authorities say he drove the truck down the path intentionally, killing eight people. Investigators recovered a cellphone that had Islamic State group propaganda.

Saipov’s lawyers haven’t returned a message seeking comment.
