San Bernardino attackers 'plotted before dating'

December 9, 2015 4:25 pm

The couple behind the San Bernardino attack that left 14 people dead were radicalised before they started dating, the director of the FBI says.

James Comey said Tashfeen Malik and husband Syed Farook spoke of jihad and martyrdom during conversations on an online dating service in late 2013.

The FBI believes the duo were inspired by foreign terrorist organisations, but said the investigation was ongoing.

Last week’s massacre was the deadliest terrorist attack in the US since 9/11.
The couple were both killed in a shoot-out with police hours after the attack.

Speaking during a Senate hearing in Washington, Mr Comey characterised the couple as “homegrown violent extremists,” and said the precise nature of the foreign influence was still under investigation.

Earlier this week, another FBI official said that there was no evidence uncovered so far to suggest the attack was plotted overseas.

Mr Comey said the investigation “indicates that they were actually radicalized before they started courting or dating each other online,” and noted discussions they had about jihad before their engagement last year.

Malik moved to the US in July 2014 on a visa designed for fiancées, and married Farook – a US native – a month later.

Meanwhile, the investigation has broadened to examine anybody who may have been “involved with assisting them, with supporting them, with equipping them,” the director said.

Over the weekend, police raided the home of Enrique Marquez, a long-time friend and distant relative of Farook, who purchased the two large weapons used during the rampage.

Mr Marquez is being questioned by federal investigators. Media reports said that authorities had trouble finding him after the attack, but later discovered he had checked into a mental health facility.

Mr Comey was also chided for not securing the couple’s home, which allowed journalists to enter and produce reports from inside. The ethics of that reporting has been widely debated.
