NEW YORK (AP) — A man accused of killing eight people in a truck attack in lower Manhattan has been described as a "lone wolf" terrorist but investigators are continuing to make sure he acted alone.

Counterterrorism experts say the investigators will want to see if anyone encouraged Sayfullo Saipov's plans for violence in any way. Authorities can compare the information to intelligence databases with names and other information agencies have gathered.

The 29-year-old is accused of using a rental truck to mow down cyclists and pedestrians on a bike path Tuesday. A criminal complaint says the Uzbek immigrant made statements about his allegiance to the Islamic State group, which later took credit for the attack.

The complaint also described how a search of two cellphones has already much evidence against the defendant.
