The wife of the Orlando nightclub shooter Mens Air Jordans 6 Retro Gatorade , who was extensively questioned by federal agents in the days after the massacre, has been arrested by the FBI in connection with the attack, authorities said Monday.

 

Noor Salman was taken into custody Monday morning in the San Francisco Bay area and is facing charges in Florida including obstruction of justice. A Twitter post from the United States attorney's office in Orlando said Salman will make her initial court appearance Tuesday morning in Oakland, California.

 

Noor Salman moved to California after her husband, Omar Mateen Mens Air Jordans 6 Gatorade Sizes 12 , was killed in a shootout with SWAT team members during the June 12 massacre at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando.

FBI agents repeatedly questioned Salman in the aftermath of the shooting about whether she had advance knowledge of her husband's plans. Salman told The New York Times in an interview published last fall that she knew her husband had watched jihadist videos but that she was "unaware of everything" regarding his intent to shoot up the club. She also said he had physically abused her.

 

"Noor Salman had no foreknowledge nor could she predict what Omar Mateen intended to do that tragic night," her attorney, Linda Moreno, said in a statement.

 

"Noor has told her story of abuse at his hands. We believe it is misguided and wrong to prosecute her and that it dishonors the memories of the victims to punish an innocent person Mens Air Jordans 6 Gatorade Shoes ," Moreno said.

 

Mateen was the only shooter, and by the time a three-hour standoff with law enforcement had ended, 49 patrons were killed and another 53 people required hospitalization.

 

Mateen pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group in a 911 call to emergency officials during the standoff. He also made a series of Facebook posts and searches before and during the attack.

 

Salman, who grew up northeast of San Francisco, wed Mateen in 2011 after the two met online. They lived in Fort Pierce Mens Air Jordans 6 Gatorade , Florida, at the time of the shooting. Last month, Salman filed a petition in a California court to change the name of the son she had with Mateen.

 

"We said from the beginning, we were going to look at every aspect of this, of every aspect of this shooter's life to determine not just why did he take these actions — but who else knew about them? Was anyone else involved?" Attorney General Loretta Lynch said in an MSNBC interview on Monday.

 

The Times first reported on the arrest.

 

Orlando Police Chief John Mina said in a statement that Salman was facing accusations of obstruction of justice and "aiding and abetting by providing material support to a foreign terrorist organization."

 

"Nothing can erase the pain we all feel about the senseless and brutal murders of 49 of our neighbors Mens Jordans 6 Gatorade 2017 , friends, family members and loved ones," Mina said. "But today, there is some relief in knowing that someone will be held accountable for that horrific crime."

 

Florida Gov. Rick Scott said he hoped the arrest "provides some comfort to the families who are mourning their loved ones," he added.

 

Chinese netizens have been engaged in hot debate over whether a zoo should be held accountable after a man who was mauled to death by a tiger was found to have climbed over the enclosure wall to avoid paying for an entrance ticket.

 

According to a poll initiated by the Chengdu Business Daily on its Sina Weibo account Monday Mens Jordans 6 Retro Gatorade , 92.2 percent of the more than 40,000 people surveyed as of press time Tuesday said the zoo should be acquitted of responsibility, while only 4.1 percent said the zoo should be held accountable for the man's death.

 

A male family member of the victim insisted on Monday that the Ningbo Youngor Zoo in East China's Zhejiang Province should be held responsible for the tragedy, the Beijing-based newspaper Legal Mirror reported.

 

"Even if he did climb over a wall to avoid paying for a ticket, it is because the zoo has poor management … given there is a loophole Mens Jordans 6 Gatorade Sizes 12 , people naturally want to exploit it," said the relative, whose name was not given.

 

The Ningbo Youngor Zoo said late on Sunday that the man surnamed Zhang, who hailed from Central China's Hubei Province, went to the zoo with his wife and two children along with two friends on Sunday afternoon. Zhang and his friend surnamed Li ignored warning signs and attempted to climb over the 3-meter-high wall topped with barbed wire that surrounds the tiger enclosure. Zhang was attacked by a tiger after scaling the enclosure fence Mens Jordans 6 Gatorade Cheap , while Li was left trapped on the outside.

 

The tiger was subsequently shot and killed while the zoo has closed its doors to the public.

 

The statement of the victim's relative has drawn severe criticism online, with many netizens saying the statement's logic was flawed.

 

"If someone drowns, should we blame the river for not having a lid?" read one comment.

 

Those who defend the victim's family say although Zhang broke the rules by failing to purchase a ticket, death is not a proper punishment for such an offense.

 

The victim was reported to be a migrant worker who earned a meager monthly salary. Acc
