(ABC Radio) Just hours after the public got its first look at Tashfeen Malik, a new photo and some new information emerged overnight about the background of the female San Bernardino, Calif. shooter, a mother-turned-killer who officials increasingly believe was the mastermind of the horrific attack.
The photograph, taken from around the time of Malik's college days in Pakistan between 2007 and 2012, is the second that has become public. Friday evening ABC News published the first, and in both the young woman has her hair covered and looks unsmiling into the camera.
Tashfeen Malik was born in Pakistan, but moved to Saudi Arabia when she was just four years old, according to an official close to the Saudi Arabian government.
