A US judge on Monday denied bail to a man charged with supporting the two Isis-inspired attackers behind the deadly San Bernardino shootings earlier this month, reports said.
Enrique Marquez, 24, was charged with providing material support to Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik.
On December 2, Mr Rizwan and Ms Malik, his wife, shot dead 14 people at a San Bernardino County Department of Public Health function. Mr Rizwan was a Department health inspector.
