Federal Bureau of Investigation locates 2nd person wanted for questioning in NYC terror attack

The FBI says it has found Uzbekistan-born Mukhammadzoir Kadirov.

USA law enforcement officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, separately on Wednesday said Saipov had been in contact with Kadirov and one other person.

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

Law enforcement officials are seeking the public's assistance with information about Kadirov in relation to the deadly attack along West Street.

"We have found him and I'll leave it at that", he added.

It's unclear what Kadirov's connection is to the Tuesday attack.

A neighbour of Saipov, 23-year-old Carlos Batista, told the Associated Press he saw Saipov and two friends come and go several times in the past three weeks in the same model Home Depot pickup used in the attack. The officials, who asked not to be identified because the investigation is ongoing, did not provide further details.

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. It was not clear whether or not Kadirov was that person.

Sayfullo Saipov, 29, was charged after the attack Tuesday afternoon near the World Trade Center killed eight people and wounded a dozen others.

Saipov, who was shot and wounded by police, was taken to court the NY federal courthouse Wednesday in a wheelchair with his hands cuffed and feet shackled.
