LONDON: The wife of one of the 2005 London bombings prime suspects, dubbed the "white widow", was on Monday linked to the ongoing siege at a shopping centre in Kenya.
Samantha Lewthwaite, the widow of bomber Jermaine Lindsay, was reportedly spotted shouting orders to gunmen in Arabic during the attack on the Westgate complex in the Kenyan capital, according to a media report.
The 29-year-old is reportedly a member of Somali al-Shabaab movement, which has claimed responsibility for the attack, and is wanted by Kenyan police over links to a suspected terrorist cell.
According to "Daily Mirror", she is a British soldier's daughter from Aylesbury and a convert to Islam who was married to Lindsay when he carried out the London suicide bombings on the city's transport network in 2005.
Meanwhile, the UK foreign office has confirmed that four British nationals have been confirmed as among those killed in the siege. Defence secretary Philip Hammond said next of kin had been informed and that the UK "stands ready" to provide more assistance to Kenya.
At least 69 people have been killed since the attack began on Saturday.
British Prime Minister David Cameron cut short a visit to Balmoral in Scotland to chair an emergency meeting here on Monday afternoon.
Hammond chaired a meeting of Cobra, the government's emergency response committee, on Monday morning. This was the third meeting of the group about the attack on the Westgate shopping centre in Nairobi.
Around 10 attackers and some 30 hostages are still thought to be holed up inside as Kenyan security forces, including commando teams and military helicopters, launched a "final assault". Heavy gunfire and explosions have been heard on Monday, and smoke is now billowing out of the top of the building.
In addition to the death toll, at least 170 people have also been injured. The Somali al-Shabaab movement has claimed responsibility for the attack.
The UK foreign office said it expects the number of British fatalities to rise.
Does she get 72 limp d*cks in hell?
Doubly Guilty upon further examination.
This is why the ‘immigration reform’ our leaders are contemplating is no where near the kind of immigration reform desperately needed.
she already had that many on earth
Of course there’s only one cure for diseases like Samantha, and that involves a tight grouping right between her eyes.
“that involves a tight grouping right between her eyes.”
I favour a short drop with a sharp spinal readjustment at the end.
A long drop with a sudden stop.
I wonder what's the story with this kid's birth certificate?
This is why an armed society works best. If only 300 people were armed out of all the thousands at the mall that day, this would have ended much differently for the tangos.
I’ll never wait for the hostage negotiator. I’d rather fight my way out, than hope for mercy from these scum.
I have been saying this all along. We need to stop letting in people from countries that hate us. But Bambi took away from the quotas from Latin American countries - in particular the three that like us the best and are the most successful (Colombia, Peru and Chile) - in order to admit more people from “Muslim lands,” including - brace yourself - 600 additional Somali “ refugees” every year. They’re not refugees because they’re Christians, btw ( it’s almost impossible for a Christian to get refugee status), but because they’re Muslim radicals of the same kind that Kenya has been trying to suppress. And these are the ones who are holed up right now in the mall in Nairobi.
I get very frustrated dealing with people here about immigration, because they seem to have no idea of the reality of LEGAL immigration and how Barry has manipulated it, often simply via executive order.
It is pipe dream thinking thats gonna get many more of us killed.
“....because they seem to have no idea of the reality of LEGAL immigration and how Barry has manipulated it....”
Neither have our congresscritters understood it until some of their family members end up bullet-riddled in some mall.
If they can do it in Nairobi they can do it in an American mall or other soft target.
“....a progressive wet dream since the Tower of Babel.”
Tower of Babel = UN.
Indeed. Including the obfuscation, it’s VERY close match to Obama’s son, if he had a son. . . (evil grin)
Do I sense that the MSM is minimizing the coverage of this event? It doesn’t seem to be attracting the kind of attention it deserves. This could be a Westland Mall near you.
I guess she went black, and can’t go back ...
Not until he’s done being a senator from Arizona.
This type of attack in America would not surprise me one bit.
Is that what happens after goats? Didn't know that.
The difference in this happening in Kenya vs. America. In America, we would have the leftist blaming the “illegal guns” calling for more gun control. While the right would be callinig for more Islamo Fascists control and placing the blame squarely where it belongs.
On an aside, my little combat tour in Somalia taught me one thing. Not to trust any of them because all of those stoned out on Qat Somalis would betray you at the drop of a hat or five bucks. Whichever came first....
Obambi’s odinga cousin at work. aint that a nice cancer for AMerica?
