She's been indicted by a federal grand jury for obstruction of justice as well as aiding and abetting her husband Omar Mateen in providing material support, or resources, to a designated terrorist organization, namely the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL. The official says Noor Salman was taken into custody Monday, Jan. 16, 2017, in the San Francisco area and is due in court Tuesday in California. In her second court hearing in two days, she wore an orange jail jumpsuit and said little.

The widow of the man who killed 49 people past year in a gay nightclub in the USA city of Orlando has been formally charged with a terror-related offence and obstruction of justice.
The indictment gave no additional details on Salman's actions. At some point, her case could be moved to Florida. Charles Swift, a Texas-based lawyer who directs the Constitutional Law Center for Muslims in America, was in the courtroom but can not actively represent Salman until he receives court permission to practice in California.
The indictment accuses Salman of misleading police officers and Federal Bureau of Investigation agents who were investigating the June 12, 2016, attack at the Pulse nightclub.
Mateen, who lived in Fort Pierce, Florida, with Salman and their young son, was self-radicalized and acted alone without assistance or orders from overseas, according to USA authorities. "When she said "I'm innocent" we know she's innocent".
After repeated interrogation by the FBI, Salman was arrested Monday at a house she shared with her mother in Rodeo, a San Francisco suburb.
Mateen was the only gunman at Pulse nightclub, and he was killed after a three-hour siege in a shootout with police.
Salman told The New York Times in an interview published in November that she knew her husband had watched jihadist videos but that she was "unaware of everything" regarding his intent to shoot up the club.
Linda Moreno, a Florida attorney who also represents Salman, said after Salman's arrest that the widow 'had no foreknowledge nor could she predict what Omar Mateen meant to do that tragic night'.
He said she remained in the marriage because she feared losing custody of the couple's 4-year-old boy.
