Report: "White Widow" Key Figure in Al-Shabab

Somali-based Al Qaeda-linked group claimed responsibility for the recent mall attack in Nairobi

|

Sky News has obtained a Kenyan intelligence report which for the first time shows the reach of the al Shabaab terror network—which carried out the Nairobi shopping mall attack—and the extent of British involvement within the group.

It suggests that Samantha Lewthwaite—the British woman known as the 'White Widow' because she was married to one of the 7/7 London bombers—is an important figure in the terror outfit, plotting multiple bomb attacks across Kenya.

Sky has also been given access to a personal diary of hers which gives a fascinating insight into her mind, where she talks about her ambitions for her children and her love for her husband.
