The White Widow

A number of British media outlets have speculated that 29-year-old Brit Samantha Lewthwaite, also known as the “White Widow,” is a prime suspect in the attack. An Islam convert and wife of Jermaine Lindsey, a suicide bomber in the 7/7 attacks in London in 2005, Lewthwaite is rumored to be a key member of al-Shabab and responsible for orchestrating the mall attack.
