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.
