White Widow could be at the center of Yemen's terror plot

 Yemen Post Staff
As foreign agencies are looking for clues which could unravel al-Qaeda's plans in Yemen, British intelligence officials have told UK-based Mirror that Samantha Lewthwaites, aka the White Widow "is involved in planes to hit targets there [Yemen], which last week led to the closure of the British embassy."
A Muslim convert, Samantha, who changed her name to Sherafiya was married to 7/7 suicide bomber, Germain Lindsay.
On July 7th, 2005, Lindsay and three other British-grown terrorists detonated four bombs three aboard London Underground trains across the city and one on a double-decker bus in Tavistock Square.
Considered a security threat by the British intelligence services, Amanda has been on the run since Christmas 2011 when the authorities issued a warrant for her arrest in relation to alleged terror activities. She is believed to have acted as a fund raiser for al-Qaeda.
British officials have now confirmed that "a crack team of SAS and specialist terror police has been beefed up in an all-out attempt to capture her," reported the Mirror quoting intelligence sources.
New intelligence reports would be linking Samantha, the White Widow to Yemen's terror plot.
A security source explained, “Samantha Lewthwaite is known as a key figure in this region in helping raise funds to facilitate terrorist activity. With the increased situation in the Yemen, ­officials fear she will play a key role, and extra ­resources are being allocated to find her. The view remains that capturing her will help reduce the risk to Westerners in the region.”
A hardened terrorist Samantha is the most wanted female terror operative in the world. She has been linked to al-Qaeda
She is believed to have been a vital conduit between al-Qaeda groups in Pakistan and East Africa, to have channeled funds raised in the UK and elsewhere to terrorist groups in Somalia, and to have attempted to set up an online a recruiting campaign for an all-female suicide squad.
With tens of thousands alleged terror militants believed to have infiltrated the Yemeni capital, over the past weeks, the British government is carefully monitoring the situation.
