'White Widow' Samantha Lewthwaite is reportedly planning more deadly attacks with her relentless quest to commit mass carnage and has sufficient funds and knowledge to carry it out, the police officials revealed.
The police officials, who seized her laptop and other possessions in Kenya in 2011, have claimed that she studied books advocating cold-blooded killing of women and children and carried out research on how to make sophisticated bombs and explosives, the Mirror reports. Police had interviewed her at the house of a known al-Qaeda operative in the Kenyan city of Mombasa, but failed to recognise her.
Lewthwaite, believed to be the mastermind of Westgate shopping mall massacre, somehow managed to flee few hours later, leaving behind a trail of clues, including the laptop and a stash of ammunition, the report added. Based on the documents, the police also said that she had been planning to target a mall in Kenya’s capital for at least past two years.
Lewthwaite is widow of one of the suicide attackers responsible for the deadly bombings on a London subway and bus, which killed 52 people and injured more than 700 in 2005.
