>> Noor Salman, widow of Orlando night club shooter Omar Mateen, appearing in federal court Tuesday, just a day after the FBI arrested her from her Bay Area home. Newly unsealed court documents revealing 30 year old Salman faces a two count federal indictment for knowingly helping her husband in America's deadliest mass shooting in June of last year that killed 49 people at Pulse, a gay nightclub.
Reuters' correspondent Curtis Skinner was in the Oakland courtroom today.>> She was facing charges of obstruction of justice and aiding, abetting in the attempted support of a foreign terrorist organization that faces the possibility of life in prison. She was dressed in just a yellow t-shirt and grey sweat pants and looked somewhat tired.
She spoke very little at the appearance and her arraignment is set for another date.>> After a three hour hostage standoff with police where Mateen pledged allegiance to Islamic State, he was killed in a shootout on June 12th. Authorities say he was a lone wolf who self-radicalized without help from foreign militants.
Salman's uncle telling reporters outside the court that Salman had no idea about her husband's plans.>> When she said I'm innocent, we know she's innocent. When she says, I have no idea what that crazy guy doing, we know that. Salman did not enter a plea but is set to appear in Federal Court again Wednesday to determine when she could be extradited to Florida.
