A message posted on the world’s most wanted woman’s Twitter account claims she recently travelled through a remote area of Somalia
Hunted: Samantha Lewthwaite
Terrorists hiding White Widow Samantha Lewthwaite have taunted detectives – by revealing she recently travelled through a remote town in Somalia.
A message posted in the last few days on the fugitive white widow’s Twitter account – quoting lyrics from the song Many Rivers To Cross by legend Jimmy Cliff – provides the first clue on her whereabouts since last month’s Kenyan mall massacre, which she is believed to hae helped to plan.
It says: “Many rivers to cross, but I can’t seem to find my way over wandering, I am lost as I travel along the Mountains of Galgala…”
It refers to a remote area of Somalia close to the town of Bari and is thought to have been posted on Lewthwaite’s behalf by Al-shabaab terrorists.
Lewthwaite, originally from Aylesbury, Bucks and the widow of 7/7 bomber Jermaine Lindsay, has been on the run since last year when police foiled a plot to blow up Western hotels in Mom.
Investigators have long been monitoring Lewthwaite’s Twitter account which she opened last year and the latest tweet provides fresh information in the hunt for the world’s most wanted woman. .
In the last few months it is thought militants from the Al-Shabab terror network – who are helping hide her – have been posting messages on her behalf.
The Sunday Mirror revealed last year how Lewthwaite – had written a chilling online diary while on the run.
In the haunting blog Lewthaite – believed to have recently married for the fourth time, to an Al-Shabaab chief – wrote how “fear can make you do many things” and warns she faces “many more challenges” in the months ahead.
“Yes, I am woman,” she wrote. “But I am woman who believes in Jihad and supremacy of Islam.”
