Samantha Lewthwaite, 'White Widow' Of London Suicide Bomber, Allegedly Recruiting Terrorists In Somalia
Samantha Lewthwaite, a terrorism suspect on the run from police in East Africa, is allegedly recruiting and training all-female terror squads, according to the Telegraph.
The 28-year-old woman is the widow of Germaine Lindsay, a suicide bomber who killed 26 people when he blew up a London subway train during the coordinated terror attacks of July 7, 2005. This earned her the nickname "White Widow" in the British press.
Lewthwaite, who is believed to be under the protection of the Somali terrorist group al-Shabaab, has been fleeing an international dragnet with her three children since December after being implicated by authorites in an Islamist plot to bomb hotels in Kenya. (...)
