'White Widow' masterminded Garissa University terror attack

18 May 2015, 11:15

Nairobi - Terror suspect Samantha Lewthwaite commonly referred to as the 'White Widow’ has murdered 400 people in terror attacks carried out by al Shabaab terror group.

According to The Mirror, Lewthwaite is said to have directed terror attacks in Somalia and Kenya, as well as masterminding last month’s attack on Garissa University College, where gunmen killed 148 people.

Security chiefs in Somalia have described the 32-year-old mother of four as an evil person but a very clever operator of the terror group.

Sources say she has become one of the most important figures in al Shabaab after being promoted rapidly through the ranks of the terror group following the killing of many of its leaders in drone attacks.
