Washington : A neighbour and friend of Pakistani origin Syed  Rizwan Farook, who along with his wife killed 14 people in a terror attack  in California,  has been arrested for allegedly providing material support  to terrorists.

Enrique Marquez and Farook allegedly began plotting terror attacks in  Southern California in 2011 – “attacks which were, fortunately, not carried  out” – and discussed a firearms and explosives attack on Riverside  Community College, officials said Thursday.

During a court appearance Thursday, Marquez said that he understood the  charges against him and is scheduled for a bail hearing on Monday.

Farook and his Pakistani origin wife Tashfeen Malik’s Dec 2 attack on the  Inland Regional Centre in San Bernardino left 14 people dead and another 22  injured.

The FBI is investigating the incident as an act of terrorism.
