San Bernardino shooters Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik have been buried in southern California, but it isn't clear exactly where. The attorneys representing the couple's families say only that it took about a week to find a cemetery willing to accept the bodies and that the pair were buried on Tuesday afternoon, per NBC News and the AP. Attendees tell Reuters about 10 people gathered for a quiet funeral at a Muslim cemetery hours away from San Bernardino, guarded by FBI agents, which followed traditional Islamic rituals. Farook and Malik died Dec. 2 in a shootout with police. Some of their 14 victims have yet to be buried. (Read more San Bernardino shooting stories.)
