Samantha Lewthwaite is the widow of British suicide bomber Jermaine Lindsay who was part of the attacks in 2005 in London. She is wanted in connection with the July 2005 London attacks and may be among the dead terrorists involved this weekend’s deadly Kenya rampage.
Meet the British mother who has been dubbed the “White Widow” and who police suspect is responsible for plotting the terrorist attacks in the mall massacre in Kenya.
Samantha Lewthwaite, 29, has been on the run for eight years, since her husband, Germaine Lindsay, blew himself up in the July 2005 suicide bombings in London that targeted subway riders. Survivors of the Westgate Mall in Nairobi said a white woman wearing a veil was among the hostage-takers. Media reports, mostly from Britain, are fueling conjecture that Lewthwaite was the white woman killed in the Nairobi attack. – NY Daily News
It is being reported but not confirmed that Samantha may have been killed today as a dead white woman was found among Islamic terrorists killed by soldiers as they stormed the mall this evening. Kenyan authorities have refused to confirm this as of yet. Shortly after the attacks Al Shabaab praised her on their Twitter account for leading the attack at Westgate mall.
