The wife of Omar Mateen, a 29-year-old security guard, who killed 49 people and wounded 53 others in a terrorist attack/hate crime inside Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, in June last year, has given up her extradition fight and will return to Florida to face federal charges against her.
Noor Salman, who is still being held at the Santa Rita jail in Dublin, California after she was arrested by the FBI in San Francisco in January signed a document Monday agreeing to the transfer.
The U.S. attorney’s office claims Salman aided and abetted her husband’s “provision of material support” to the terrorist group ISIS, also known as ISIL.
Salman is also accused of misleading federal agents and Fort Pierce, Florida, police officers who questioned her about Mateen’s attack at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando on June 12, 2016.
