The FBI still has many questions about the terrorist couple that opened fire and killed 14 people during a holiday party in San Bernardino on Dec. 2.

Did they get help from other terrorists? Were they planning to detonate a bomb at the Inland Regional Center where they opened fire? Were they planning other attacks?

Those questions, FBI investigators hoped, would be on a cell phone that belonged to the couple Syed Rizwan Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik.

But the FBI still can’t unlock encrypted data on the cellphone, the Los Angeles Times reports. 

“We still have one of those killers’ phones that we haven’t been able to open,” FBI Director James B. Comey told the Senate Intelligence Committee. “It has been two months now and we are still working on it.”

Encrypted cell phones have been a challenge for federal law enforcement who are trying to track suspected terrorists in real time, the FBI has said.
