The Black Window Might Be Part Of Kenya’s West Gate Mall Terror Attack

Intelligence and security services are investigating whether the suspected “white widow” terrorist, Samantha Lewthwaite, was involved in the terrorist attack at a Kenya shopping centre.
Lewthwaite, the British widow of the July 7, 2007 London bomber Germaine Lindsay, is already suspected of plotting to attack venues popular with westerners in Kenya and is in hiding.
She was accused of being part of a terrorist cell that allegedly involved other Britons and has been linked with the terrorist group al-Shabaab.
Concerns over her possible involvement grew on Sunday night amid reports that at least one of the attackers was a woman and others were white. Security sources in Britain and Kenya said there was no intelligence to suggest she was among the attackers but it could not be “completely discounted” yet.
The terrorists threw grenades and fired on civilians at Westgate shopping centre in Nairobi on Saturday, killing at least 68 and wounding 205 in one of the most chilling terrorist attacks in East Africa since al-Qaeda blew up two US embassies in 1998.
Kenya has had a long struggle against terrorism and serious crime, especially because of its border with Somalia, the stronghold of al-Shabaab. The Nairobi attack is the latest in a series to involve Britons as victims or suspects. As a result, Britain and Kenya’s security and intelligence services have strong links.
Al-Shabaab is also known to attract foreign jihadists and considers Kenya a target because of its military involvement in Somalia to combat terrorism.
Lewthwaite evaded Kenyan authorities after she was accused of being involved in a cell that planned to attack a hotel or a shopping mall in 2011. Reports have also suggested she joined forces with al-Shabaab. She was charged by the Kenyans on terrorism charges in her absence.
Another Briton in the alleged cell, Jermaine Grant, from Newham, east London, was held and is facing allegations of possessing explosives and plotting bomb attacks in a trial in Mombasa.
A third Briton accused alongside the two, Habib Ghani, is thought to have been killed in a feud with al-Shabaab earlier this month. Reports suggested that Ghani recently married Lewthwaite
