California shooter lived in Saudi Arabia for years: Pakistani sources

Accused San Bernardino shooter Tashfeen Malik moved to Saudi Arabia from Pakistan about 25 years ago but returned home to study to become a pharmacist, two Pakistani officials told Reuters.

Malik, 27, was from the Layyah district in southern Punjab province, the officials said. She returned to Pakistan five or six years ago to complete a degree from Bahauddin Zakariya University in Multan, they said.

A family member said he had been contacted by Pakistani intelligence as part of the investigation of Wednesday’s deadly shooting in San Bernardino, California.
