San Bernardino shooters met, became engaged during 2013 Mecca pilgrimage

WASHINGTON - San Bernardino shooters Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik first met in person and became engaged during the 2013 Haj pilgrimage in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, according to a statement Farook made as part of Malik's official US visa application.
In a separate part of Malik's immigration file, provided to Reuters by congressional sources, Malik answered "no" to questions about her background and activities, including whether she had ever received weapons training or engaged in "terrorist activity." The questions were included as part of a US permanent residence application, Form I-485 used by the Department of Homeland Security's immigration unit.
