Jury selection continues in Noor Salman trial

- Jury selection continues into a second week in the federal trial of a woman whose husband killed 49 people at a gay Florida nightclub. 

Some potential jurors on Monday were asked about their thoughts on Muslims and the Islamic faith, and whether their views on the religion would impact their ability to judge Salman fairly.

"The family wants people to know that she's innocent, that she didn't participate in this horrible tragedy," said Susan Clary.  "She's a very naive and innocent woman.  I met her yesterday, visited her and talked to her or a while.  She's very young for her age, and very easily manipulated."

Noor Salman is charged with aiding and abetting her husband, Omar Mateen. She's pleaded not guilty.
