  • Pulse nightclub shooter's father was an FBI informant

A jury has acquitted Noor Salman of all charges related to her alleged involvement in the Pulse nightclub massacre.

Prosecutors said Salman cased possible attack sites with her husband and did nothing to stop his plans. "I think that she knew that he was up to something".

"The family really wants to first say that we're very sorry for the family members and friends of the 49 victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting and also the survivors of that frightful attack".

"She may not be guilty, but she's not innocent", said 50-year-old Pulse patron Louis Morales. What exactly was Noor Salman charged with?

"It's a awful, random, senseless killing by a monster", Mr Swift said during closing arguments.

These decisions come as a continuation of the diplomatic demarche of the countries of the West due to the use of the nerve agent in the UK.

The jurors have been deliberating since Wednesday as to whether or not Salman was guilty of the charges pinned against her.

Federal Bureau of Investigation special agent Ricardo Enriquez testified that Salman said in several statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation that Mateen watched jihadi beheading videos, purchased a rifle and ammunition and went to a gun range to practice.

We can never bring back the 49 innocent victims whose lives were taken on June 12, 2016, or erase the pain that the horrific act brought to so many, but hopefully the conclusion of the trial can help our community continue the healing process.

On the other side of the Orlando courtroom, the families of the victims of the June 2016 Pulse nightclub shooting sat stone-faced and silent.

"It was a hard case for all sides involved", said Judge Paul G. Byron of the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida.

In a rapid-fire series of decisions, an appeals court on Wednesday rejected Walker's request that it block the lower court order. But, this week, despite every effort by Scott Walker to avert the expression of the will of the people, democracy prevailed.

Mateen was killed by police following the attack.

"I'm in shock. I think that she knew that he was up to something", said Neema Bahrami, an event manager at the nightclub who survived the shooting while his best friend was killed.

Bruce Frumkin, a forensic clinical psychologist, testified Tuesday that a lack of sleep, mental issues, low IQ scores and lengthy interrogations contribute to false confessions. They said she wasn't an Islamic extremist. Her lawyers say she had no knowledge of them and was mentally and physically abused by him.

Offering an especially chilling detail, Ms. Sweeney suggested that Mr. Mateen bought a baby carriage and doll at a Walmart the night before the massacre so that he could hide his AR-15 assault rifle and draw no suspicion as he walked toward what prosecutors believe was his intended target, the Disney Springs shopping and entertainment complex, formerly known as Downtown Disney.

Prosecutors argued the messages show Salman was helping her husband concoct a cover story to tell his parents, who had invited the couple to a fast-breaking dinner at their mosque.

In the long-term, it can lead to inflammation of the pelvic region in women, and possibly infertility. Symptoms include a burning sensation when urinating and unusual discharge from the penis or vagina.

The government contended also that she knew Mateen had a sick fascination with violent jihadi videos and an affinity for Islamic State group websites, and that she gave him a "green light to commit terrorism". Her family gasped each time the words "not guilty" were pronounced. Spokesman Susan Clary said the widow was "elated" she could "go home to her son".
