RELATED: Was bomber radicalized by wife?

Following her lead: Miss Thwany was radicalised following a trip to North Africa and her grandmother believes that Al-Abdaly was then introduced to that form of Islam
Mona Thwany’s lips are painted bright red, and she wears a clinging top with a plunging neckline. Smiling broadly for the camera with dark hair flowing over her shoulders, she looks very much a glamorous Western wife.
It is a rare departure from her usual appearance. The widow of suicide bomber Taimour Abdulwahab, in hiding while the three-bed semi she shared with her husband in Luton is scoured by forensic officers, is rarely seen without a veil covering her face.
Her Romanian grandmother Maria Nedelcovici last night told how Miss Thwany was radicalised on a trip to North Africa and in turn, introduced her husband to radical Islam.
Speaking moments after being told of Abdulwahab’s suicide mission, tearful Mrs Nedelcovici cried out: ‘Why did you do this Mona?’ She said she and other relatives warned her granddaughter that her conversion to radical Islam would destroy her family.
But Miss Thwany refused to change her ideas, she claimed – and in June of this year she and her husband went on to name their only son Osama, the same name of Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.
