Noor Salman is found not guilty of helping her husband Omar Mateen plan and carry out the June 12, 2016 attack at the Florida Pulse night club that killed 49 and injured 53 others.

United States District Court of Florida found her not guilty on all accounts on Friday morning. 

Defence lawyer Charles Swift said in his closing argument: “She doesn’t go to the mosque, she searches for Hello Kitty on her website.

“We’re supposed to believe she had long conversations with Omar Mateen about jihads?”

Noor, 31, was held in jail without bail on January 2017 and was being charged with obstruction of justice, and aiding and abetting the attempted provision of material support to a foreign terrorist organization.

Omar Mateen was killed by police during the rampage at the Florida club.
