The FBI has arrested Noor Salman, the wife of Omar Mateen – the man who committed the worst mass shooting in American history.
Salman was arrested in San Franscisco, and will appear in a California court January 17.
On June 12, 2016, Omar Mateen massacred 49 people at Orlando’s Pulse Nightclub – a hotspot for Orlando’s LGBT community.
During the massacre, Mateen pledged allegiance to ISIS.
Orlando Police Department Statement On Arrest Of Noor Salman

Noor Salman had previously said she had no knowledge of what her husband was planning, despite the fact that he emptied out their bank account and bought her tons of gifts before the horrible massacre.
Her arrest signals the authorities do not believe Salman’s story, and see her as either complicit in the attack, or as failing to help the investigation – hence the obstruction of justice charge.
