Kenya is on a “White Widow” Hunt

White Widow Passport

The hunt is on for Samantha Lewthwaite, a fugitive known as the “White Widow” who is wanted for her involvement in the Kenyan shopping mall attack.

Interpol has issued a worldwide arrest notice for the notorious “white widow” at the request of Kenyan authorities. The 29-year-old Muslim convert is best known for being the wife (and now widow…) of Jermaine Lindsay who was one of four suicide bombers that participated in the 2005 London bombings that killed 52 commuters.

Lewthwaite originally criticized her late husband and condemned the attacks — but later apparently had a change of heart and embraced the jihadi cause (or was just a good liar).

Since there is no concrete evidence linking her to last week’s terrorist attack on the upscale shopping mall, the Interpol statement said Lewthwaite is wanted on charges of possessing explosives and conspiracy to commit a felony in December 2011. The white widow, who has been using a fake South African passport under the name Natalie Faye Webb, was supposedly planning attacks in touristy regions along the coast of Kenya.

While authorities are unsure about the extent of her involvement in the Kenya attack, the Briton has been linked with Somali militant Islamist group al-Shabab. Add that to the fact that her late husband was a suicide bomber and several witnesses saw a white woman shooting at them and she’s looking pretty suspicious… White Widow Cat

So if you see anyone who looks like this: (roughly….)

Please notify Interpol.
