FBI ARREST WIFE OF ORLANDO NIGHTCLUB MASSACRE …
The FBI has arrested Noor Salman, the wife of the terrorist who carried out the deadly shooting attack in Orlando, Florida in 2016. Omar Mateen killed 49 people and wounded dozens in an Orlando nightclub. Salman was charged with obstructing the investigation of the mass shooting and also with aiding and abetting by providing material support. Salman had been questioned by the FBI immediately following the shooting in Orlando. FBI investigators have been considering charges since that time, believing she was lying about her knowledge of her husband’s planned attack. Salman will make her initial appearance on Tuesday morning in federal court in Oakland, California.
The F.B.I. arrested the wife of the man who carried out a deadly terrorist attack in Orlando, Fla., and charged her with obstructing the investigation of the mass shooting, law enforcement officials said on Monday.
Noor Salman, whose husband, Omar Mateen, killed 49 people and wounded dozens in an Orlando nightclub that was popular with gays, was also charged with aiding and abetting by providing material support, the officials said.
She was taken into custody by F.B.I. agents at her home outside San Francisco, where she had been living with her young son. Prosecutors had been weighing charges against her for months in the aftermath of the attack by her husband on June 12, 2016.
