Pulse shooter's wife will be freed from jail

Pulse shooter's wife will be freed from jail

A judge's decision to grant bail for the wife of a man who killed 49 people at a nightclub in Orlando, Florida, pending her trial, has sparked outrage.

Freeing Salman, 31, on $500,000 (£400,000) bail, magistrate Judge Donna Ryu said the accused did not pose a flight risk and held no credible link to Isis but must remain in jail for a further two days pending an appeal. No evidence of ties between Salman and the Islamic State have been found.

Orlando Police Chief John Mina released a statement following the news of Salman's release. Her husband, Omar Mateen, pledged allegiance to several terror organizations during the shooting that killed 49 people at Pulse nightclub in Orlando before police killed him.

Sweeney said Mateen asked Salman whether attacking the Disney site would have a bigger impact than attacking a nightclub.

Salman has pleaded not guilty to charges of aiding and abetting, and obstruction of justice. Ryu called the conditions of Salman's release "essentially house arrest", because she can only leave for court appearances, meetings with her local attorneys and doctor's appointments.

Noor told the Federal Bureau of Investigation she was with him when he bought ammunition and a holster, several officials familiar with the case said.

Pediatricians warn about dangers of pot use by kids
As more states decriminalize the use of pot, he says he is anxious teens won't take the long-term consequences seriously. AAP recently issued new guidelines and urging parents and doctors to save the children from the harm of marijuana.

Their motion came a day after a judge in California had ordered Noor Salman to be released as early as Friday, saying it's "debatable" whether the government has enough evidence to convict her. U.S. Magistrate Judge Donna Ryu also said Salman, 31, is not risky and there is no proof she has ties to the Islamic State group or holds extremist views. Salman's uncle Abdallah agreed to be her main supervisor.

Salman's attorneys said she didn't share her husband's views.

But prosecutors argue that Salman remains a danger to the public. Salman's 4-year-old son with Mateen, who is living with her mother, will be allowed to visit. They allege Ryu " incorrectly held the government to a higher standard before crediting its evidence than she did the defense". Among the purchases was an $8,000 diamond ring for Salman.

Salman is scheduled to be released Friday.

She can not apply for a passport or visa while her case is being prosecuted.
