Samantha Lewthwaite was once seen as a victim – the pregnant wife of one of the suicide bombers who killed 52 people.
She condemned the attacks and then disappeared. Now Kenyan authorities are looking for. The infamous “White Widow” is allegedly a supporter of people who are linked to the Somali terror group Al-Shabaab.
Reports say that a white woman was among the terrorists who massacred Westgate Shopping Mall in Kenya on Saturday. Al-Shabaab has claimed responsibility for the attacks. This has caused a flurry of media speculation that Lewthwaite may have been involved.
A Kenyan government official said a woman was among the attackers, but it has not been determined who she might be.
Interpol on Thursday issued a red notice -- an international wanted alert -- for Lewthwaite at Kenya's request.
