‘White Widow’ Samantha Lewthwaite feared to be planning more attacks

Police fear Samantha Lewthwaite – the fugitive Brit dubbed the ‘White Widow’ – is planning more terror attacks, after documents found on her laptop linked her to the Nairobi mall massacre.

The laptop seized in Kenya in 2011 contained documents that revealed the British suspect had been plotting to target a mall in Kenya’s capital for at least two years.

The computer showed Lewthwaite had carried out detailed research on how to make bombs and explosives.

“The international security community is working round the clock to identify her whereabouts and capture her without delay,” a source said.

“The lives of hundreds, if not thousands, of innocent people are at risk if she is able to launch an attack. She needs to be stopped in her tracks before it is too late.

“She is a danger to the world.”

Authorities think Lewthwaite had probably been planning an attack on a different mall in 2011, but realised her plan last month at Westgate shopping centre where at least 67 people were murdered in cold blood.

Lewthwaite, 29, who is nicknamed White Widow because she was married to the 2005 London bombings suicide bomber Jermaine Lindsay, has been dubbed the world’s most wanted woman after the Westgate atrocity.

She has been in hiding since December 2011 after police linked her and fellow Briton Jermaine Grant, 30, to a foiled bombing plot against Western tourists in Kenya.

The White Widow was made the subject of a high-alert Red Notice by Interpol after being linked to the massacre.

Police sources have revealed for the first time that there is “specific intelligence” that puts Lewthwaite at the heart of at least six separate bomb plots in Kenya.

One was a grenade attack on a sports bar in Mombasa last year when a little boy was killed.
