Omar Mateen's wife Nour Salman, 30, has told US law enforcement officers that she tried to stop her husband from carrying out his bloody attack on an Orlando gay club, it has been reported. His second wife, she is said to have been with the terrorist when he bought ammunition and prepared for the attack that murdered 49 people.
Salmon, who is of Palestinian descent, also drove him out to Pulse, the gay club, so that he could scope it out, say FBI sources familiar with the case.
The killer’s wife faces criminal prosecution on several counts of complicity in a major felony. She is said to be cooperating with the investigation.
