U.S. arrests wife of gunman who killed 49 at Orlando nightclub
U.S. authorities have arrested the wife of the gunman who killed 49 people at an Orlando gay nightclub last year, a massacre that intensified fears about attacks against Americans inspired by the Islamic State, the U.S. attorney general said on Monday. The arrest of Noor Salman came seven months after her husband Omar Mateen went on the rampage and was killed by police while holed up in the Florida club. "Certainly I can confirm that an arrest did occur in this case," Attorney General Loretta Lynch told MSNBC after reports in the New York Times and other media outlets.
Martin Luther King's daughter says 'God can triumph over Trump'
The daughter of slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King marked the holiday that honors her father on Monday by siding with African-American congressman and activist John Lewis over President-elect Donald Trump in an imbroglio that erupted over the weekend.

Bernice King, the youngest daughter of Martin Luther King, who would have been 88 years old on Sunday, was interrupted frequently by thunderous applause during an address at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, the house of worship in Lewis' district where King once preached.
