Law enforcement agencies are no longer seeking a second person of interest in connection with Tuesday's terror attack in lower Manhattan that left eight people dead.

The FBI is now seeking a second Uzbek man named as Mukhammadzoir Kadirov.

An Uzbek immigrant accused of killing eight people in NY by driving a rental truck down a bike path became interested in religion after emigrating to the United States, a fellow Uzbek who spoke to him two months ago told Reuters on Wednesday.

Kadirov is also from Uzbekistan, the same country that Tuesday's suspect, Sayfullo Saipov, is from.

It's believed Saipov became radicalised into Islamic State ideology after settling in the USA, however.

Williams then asked her producer for tissues before explaining why she chose to reach for the back of her head on her way down. Wendy Williams was in the middle of her show's annual " How You Doin' Halloween Costume Contest" when the incident happened.

The person in touch with Kadirov's family says the two men knew each other only from their days as fellow drivers for the ride-sharing app Uber and were not close friends.

A man accused of driving a truck down a bike path near the World Trade Center and killing eight people has been taken into court in a wheelchair.

He was slated to be arraigned on terrorism charges Wednesday night.

He had emigrated to the USA in 2010 and CNN said he had left a note saying he carried out the attack in the name of Islamic State (IS) and had shouted "Allahu Akbar" ("God is greatest" in Arabic) after the violence. The officials, who asked not to be identified because the investigation is ongoing, did not provide further details.

Police had released an appeal for the man and urged members of the public with information about him to contact the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
