Attorney General William Barr says that the fatal shooting at a Naval air base in Pensacola, Florida, in December was an "act of terrorism" that was motivated by "jihadist ideology" Three sailors were killed and eight others were injured when 21-year-old Mohammed Alshamrani, a member of the Saudi Royal Air Force who was training at the base, opened fire. Alshamrani, who died at the scene, also fired bullets into one of his phones, according to the attorney general. Mr. Barr says the FBI has sought help from Apple in unlocking the device but has "received no substantive assistance." "We call on Apple and other technology companies to help us find a solution so that we can better protect the lives of Americans and prevent future attacks," Barr says. close
