Intelligence officers are trying to establish whether a white woman reported to be among three dead hostage-takers in Nairobi is the British terror suspect Samantha Lewthwaite.
The Foreign Office and British spy agencies have said they can not rule out the possibility that Lewthwaite, the widow of the July 7 London bomber Germaine Lindsay, was involved. A senior Whitehall source told The Daily Telegraph it was “likely” that a woman of non-African, and possibly Caucasian, descent will prove to have been among the killers.
Lewthwaite, 29, a Muslim convert who is already wanted in Kenya on terror charges, has been labelled the “white widow” because of her marriage to Lindsay, who blew up a London Underground train at King’s Cross in 2005, killing 26 people. (Photo: AFP/Getty Images)
