Second Uzbek man sought for questioning in New York attack probe
A second Uzbek man is wanted for questioning by authorities in the investigation of Tuesday’s truck attack in New York City that killed eight people, a law enforcement official said on Wednesday.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation said in a wanted poster issued on Wednesday it was seeking information on Mukhammadzoir Kadirov, a 32-year-old native of Uzbekistan. Another Uzbek man, Sayfullo Saipov, 29, was charged on Wednesday with commiting the attack in the name of the Islamic State militant group.
