On June 12 2016, a killer named Omar Mateen shot 49 civilians dead and wounded dozens of people at the Orlando Night Club. The police killed the gunman after a three hour battle; the incident was noted as one of the deadliest in modern U.S history.

The killer pledged commitment to the Islamic State terror group, on Monday the FBI arrested the killer's wife with charges against her supporting her husband's attempts and contribution to the terrorist group ISIS.

According to Fox News, the 30 year old Noor Salman was a part of Omar's attack. The FBI agents took her into custody at her home outside of San Francisco, Noor was living with her son and she is to take her initial appearance in the Federal Court in Oakland, California on Tuesday morning.

The investigators believed that she was not being truthful about her husband's plans to carry out the rampage, when she was interviewed for hours after the attack. Prosecutors have been listing charger against her after the mass shooting.

The decision to prosecute Noor is left up to the Justice Department, she certainly became the central object of the investigation on the case. The wife of the killer stated that she was totally unaware of everything in connection to the attack as per the New York Times.

On the day of the incident she claimed that she went to visit a friend named Nemo in Florida, after further investigation it came to light that Nemo was not living in Florida at that moment.

The accused has been trying to justify herself, saying that she had no reason to suspect the ammunition brought in by her husband days before the attack. This was because the killer was a shooting guard who often purchased ammunition. As for the killer he used Facebook to pledge his allegiance to Islamic State. The incident was definitely an act of terrorism that shook the residents of Orlando and the Country.
