NEW YORK (AP) – Federal prosecutors in New York file terrorism charges against bike path attack suspect Sayfullo Saipov.

Authorities want to talk to another person in connection with the truck attack in Lower Manhattan. The FBI released a poster seeking information about Mukhammadzoir Kadirov, 32, of Uzbekistan.

Authorities charged Sayfullo Saipov, a New Jersey resident originally from Uzbekistan, with providing material support to a terrorist group and committing violence and destruction of motor vehicles. Police said he drove a rental truck almost a mile along a recreational path, killing eight pedestrians and cyclists.
