Second person wanted by FBI over New York City terror attack

The Federal Bureau of Investigation said it is seeking a second Uzbek man in relation to the NY attack that killed eight people on a cycling and jogging path on October 31, 2017. According to the New York Daily News, authorities were looking for Mukhammadzoir Kadirov.

On Thursday, Kadirov released a statement to The Associated Press through a source in touch with his family.

"We have found him and we will leave it at that", said Bill Sweeney, the assistant director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Authorities said Saipov had been planning the attack for a "number of weeks" and did it "in the name of ISIS". He is charged with killing eight people and injuring nearly a dozen when he drove a rented pickup truck down a bike path near the World Trade Center in downtown Manhattan.

He was shot in the abdomen by police and taken to hospital where he is expected to make a full recovery.


Prosecutors said Saipov was "consumed by hate and a twisted ideology" when he carried out the attack.

Saipov was charged Wednesday with terrorism crimes.

They said he chose Halloween for the attack because he believed there would be more people on the street.

The FBI put out a wanted poster for an Uzbek national labelled a "person of interest" in Tuesday's terror attack - but called off the search an hour later.
