Apple must help the FBI break into an iPhone belonging to one of the killers in the San Bernardino, Calif., shootings, a federal judge ordered Tuesday.

Tashfeen Malik and her husband, Syed Rizwan Farook shot and killed 14 people in December. The couple later died in a gun battle with police. The iPhone was recovered from the vehicle in the aftermath of the attack.

The ruling from U.S. Magistrate Sheri Pym requires Apple to provide the FBI with software that can disable the security feature that erases data from the iPhone after too many unsuccessful attempts to unlock it.
