Tragically, British "White Widow" Not Killed in Kenya Mall Attack: Interpol Issues Arrest Warrant
News of Samantha Lewthwaite's demise have been exaggerated:
Interpol has issued an arrest notice for Samantha Lewthwaite, the fugitive Northern Irish woman whom news media have dubbed the “White Widow”.Given that she's the one behind al Shabaab's twitter account that continues to spew ... of course she's alive!
The international police agency says the notice was issued at the request of Kenya, where she is wanted on charges of possessing explosives and conspiracy to commit a felony in December 2011.
Ms Lewthwaite was married to one of the suicide bombers who attacked London’s transport network in 2005.
She is wanted by Kenyan authorities over alleged involvement in a plot to bomb holiday resorts there.
Let's hope that she resists arrest.
