A US official says the Palestinian-American wife of Orlando shooter Omar Mateen has been arrested for obstruction.
FBI agents arrested Noor Salman at her home in northern California.
Her husband killed 49 people in an shooting rampage at a nightclub in Orlando on June 12, 2016.
According to The New York Times, prosecutors have been weighing charges against Salman for several months.
Salman’s parents immigrated to the US from the West Bank in 1985. She was arrested and questioned as a person of interest immediately following the shooting, but was later released.
She is expected to appear before a judge in federal court on Tuesday.
