Manhattan terror attack: FBI finds second Uzbek
New York, Nov 2: A day after Manhattan terror attack, US justice officials announced on Thursday that they had found a second Uzbek man they were seeking in relation to the attack that killed eight people.
Less than an hour after the FBI released posters with a picture of Mukhammadzoir Kadirov, 32, and appealed for information, William Sweeney, the assistant director of the FBI's New York field office said he had been located.
"We are no longer looking for the person the information went out about," Sweeney told a press conference.
"We have found him and I'll leave it at that," he added.
The police have identified Manhattan attacker as Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov. He is from Uzbekistan and came to the United States in 2010. A note stating that the attack was staged in the name of the ISIS was found in the truck.
