Seeking Custody and Answers: Sister of San Bernardino Shooter Hopes to Adopt Abandoned Niece

posted on November 28, 2016

The Washington Post’s Eli Saslow reports from California on the sister of one of the San Bernadino shooters, who is trying to adopt her orphaned niece, even as the child remains in state custody. Saira Khan also struggles with the terrorism her brother and his wife committed. “Should they somehow have known? Did they miss out on clues?” Saslow writes. He continues, “Saira had begun confiding mostly in a therapist, saying that she felt distrusted, misunderstood, secluded, alone — all of which brought her back to thinking about her niece, whom Saira considered the most alone of all. When are we going to tell her about her parents?’ Saira said now.”
