'White Widow' Linked to Garissa University College Massacre

  • Details emerging have pointed to Samantha Lewthwaite, labeled white widow as the master mind behind the terrorist attack on Garissa University College which left 148 people dead.

    The British Jihadist has been named the most wanted and dangerous woman in the world, with over 400 deaths believed to have been orchestrated by her.

    This is the second major attack in Kenya credited to Lewthwaite, after Westgate siege in which 67 people were killed.

    An evil genius of sorts, the London University graduate is said to have quickly gone up the ranks in the Somalia based Al Qaeda splinter Al Shabaab and is second only to the group's leader Ahmad Umar.

    The white widow was married to Jermaine Lindsay,  a jihadist who died along other killers who blew themselves up and killed 52 people in London on July 7, 2005.

    After the suicide bombings, the mother of four is said to have fled to Somalia where she established herself as a valuable asset to Al Shabaab and got successive promotions due to her meticulous planning of attacks as other Shabaab leaders continued die.

    Evil Person, Clever Operator

    According to a report by Mirror, a Somali Anti Terror Officer described the white widow "as an evil person but a very clever operator".

    She is said to be recruiting teenagers, some as young as 15 into the group and sending them for suicide missions.

    Cold and calculating,  Lewthwaite has also been taking advantage of poverty stricken families by offering them money so their children can join Al Shabaab.

    There have been rumors in the past, about her being killed, but reports indicate that the 31 year old has so far managed to evade security forces looking for her by being careful to mastermind attacks without taking part in them and being constantly on the move.

    The terrorist is now on the watch list of and being hunted by security forces from 200 countries in the world.
