The FBI Identifies Another 'Person of Interest' in NYC Terror Attack

The agency had earlier issued the poster for Mukhammadzoir Kadirov, 32, saying it was seeking information about him.

Federal agents said they've located a man who associated with the Manhattan man who sped a truck down a New York City bike path, killing eight people and injuring a dozen others.

The FBI and NYPD say that Mukhammadzoir Kadirov is a person of interest in the case.
