By Akpabio Aniema

A white woman, Samantha Lewthwaite who happens to be the British widow of Jermaine Lindsay is believed to be among the terrorists gunned down by the kenyan troops in the Kenya mall attack. Samantha Lewthwaite was the widow of the late Germaine Lindsay, one of the suicide bombers of the 7/7 London suicide bombers along with three others in 2005 where 52 people were left dead and others seriously injured.

According to the soilders, ”A white woman wearing a veil was seen shouting orders to the terrorists in arabic, inside the Westgate shopping mall bloody massacre in Nairobi Kenya on Saturday.”
Though we are yet to authoritatively confirm if it was Samantha Lewthwaite or someone else.
More than 200 civilians has been rescued but the gunmen still has about 10 hostages with them inside the mall.

The Somalia-based Shabab militant group, which has taken responsibility for the attack, said in a message on a Twitter account linked with it that some hostages were still alive and that its fighters remained at large in the complex. The fighters, the Shabab said, are “still holding their ground.”

Today marks the fourth day of attack.
