White Widow: British jihadi Samantha Lewthwaite is thought to have orchestrated a number of attacks
White Widow Samantha Lewthwaite has masterminded the murder of 400 people after becoming a key member of terror group Al Shabaab, it was claimed last night.
The British jihadi is thought to have orchestrated a number of attacks including last month’s slaughter of 148 people at a university in northern Kenya.
Lewthwaite, the widow of London 7/7 bomber Jermaine Lindsay, is believed to have risen rapidly through the ranks and is now very close to its leader Ahmad Umar.
The London University graduate is now coordinating car bombs and suicide attacks in Somalia and Kenya as well as trying to recruit children as jihadis, according to an officer in the Somali security forces.
The anti-terror officer told the Daily Mirror last night that mother of four Lewthwaite is ‘an evil person but a very clever operator’ who has been quickly promoted after many of al Shabaab’s leaders have been killed in drone strikes.
The official also said the 31-year-old Briton was offering poverty-stricken families £300 to use their children and women as suicide bombers.
