Apple refuses court order to unlock IPhone of San Bernardino killer

Tech giant Apple has been ordered to assist the F.B.I to unlock the IPhone used by one of the attackers in the San Bernardino shootings that left 14 people dead.

The ruling was handed down by a judge in California after agents had been unable to access the phone used by one of the killers, Syed Rizwan Farook

Farook was shot by police along with his wife Tashfeen Malik .

Apple has refused to cooperate with the F.B.I and will oppose the judge’s decision.

The company says providing access to its technology would compromise the personal data of millions of Apple users.

Authorities insist the phone may contain vital information about the murderers and their motivation.
