London, Sep 24: Speculations are high that the widow of 7/7 London bomber, Jermaine Lindsay, dubbed the White Widow, may have been shot dead by Kenyan soldiers during the Nairobi mall massacre.
Investigators are trying to identify the body of a white woman found among the Islamic militants killed as troops stormed the complex.
According to the Mirror, experts believe she helped plan the attack and may have been part of the terrorist group that killed 62 shoppers.
An intelligence source said that Samantha Lewthwaite is the most wanted female terrorist in the world, adding that she has managed to evade capture for two years but she may have finally been killed.
The source added that Lewthwaite may have plotted the slaughter with the al-Shabaab terror group in revenge for the capture of her right hand man.
She had allegedly planned to bomb Kenyan beach resorts with London-born Jermaine Grant.
One senior security official said that despite the reports of her death, many believed Lewthwaite was still at large.
He added that she is an al-Shabaab lieutenant and has used her influence to bring bloodshed to Kenya. The timings of this attack are very sensitive, the report added. (ANI)
