British press: Widow of 7/7 bomber hunted in terror alert

British media's ever-increasing campaign of war, fear and hate-mongering is an ominous sign of new wars abroad and severe repression at home.

excerpts from: Widow of 7/7 bomber hunted in terror alert

Kenyan police investigating new plot seek woman with multiple identities 7/7 bomber's widow hunted in terror alert

by Sean O'Neill, The Times, 29 February 2012

A woman who police believe may be the widow of one of the July 7 bombers is wanted for questioning by Kenyan authorities about a suspected terror plot, The Times has learnt.

Anti-terrorist officers in Nairobi suspect that Samantha Lewthwaite, 28, who was married to Jermaine Lindsay, the suicide bomber who blew up a Tube train at King's Cross [in Central London] in 2005, may have been part of a cell planning a terror attack in the coastal city of Mombasa last Christmas.

The Kenyans are hunting a female suspect who evaded capture when police swooped on the group last December.  [...]  She has had three identities in the past and that [Samantha Lewthwaite] is one possible identity," Eric Kiraithe, a Kenyan police spokesman, said yesterday.  [...]

The Kenyan authorities have been liaising with the [London] Metropolitan Police over the continuing operation. The Met [i.e. the London Metropolitan Police] sent a large team of detectives from its Counter Terrorism Command to Nairobi to assist with the investigation and attempts have been made to trace her in Britain.  [...]

The terror cell is thought to have been directed by al-Shabaab, the Mujahidin group which is waging a guerrilla war against Kenyan security forces in neighbouring Somalia. There are between 30 and 40 Britons at present fighting with al-Shabaab, which is affiliated to al-Qaeda, in the Somali conflict.
