British 'White Widow' Rises in Al-Shabaab

The British woman known as “the white widow” has risen through the ranks of Somalia-based Islamic terrorist organization Al-Shabaab, and has had a hand in more the 400 murders.
Samantha Lewthwaite, a 31-year-old Muslim convert and mother of four whose husband was one of the London 7/7 suicide bombers, has the confidence of Al-Shabaab leader Ahmad Umar and played a key role in last month’s slaughter of 148 people at a university in Kenya.
