State of emergency declared in San Bernardino after shooting


LOS ANGELES: California Governor Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency in San Bernardino County Friday following the December 2 attack there that killed 14 people. The bureaucratic move lets the state allocate funds to the county health department “until the county is able to resume normal staffing levels,” and suspends fees on things like “copies of certificates of death records by any person who suffered a loss of a family member due to the terrorist attack.” The shooters targeted a San Bernardino County health department holiday party. US-born Syed Farook and his Pakistani wife Tashfeen Malik carried out the San Bernardino rampage. The radicalized Muslim couple is believed to have been inspired, if not directed, by the Islamic State terror group.
