THE widow of Huddersfield suicide bomber Jermaine Lindsay has become one of the world’s most wanted criminals.
Interpol is to issue a worldwide arrest warrant for fugitive British terror suspect Samantha Lewthwaite after police discovered vital new evidence on a computer left in her Kenyan hideout.
The ‘red notice’ puts her on its ‘most wanted’ list and is an urgent request to more than 200 police forces to arrest her.
The laptop had been smashed in an effort to destroy its contents but experts from Scotland Yard’s counter-terrorism unit were called in to painstakingly comb through the machine’s hard drive and recover its secrets.
Photographs on the laptop shows Lewthwaite posing in make up with her hair down.
In another shot, the woman dubbed “The White Widow” has been superimposed to appear on a screen in Times Square, New York.
Lewthwaite is being hunted in Kenya after being linked to a number of horrific terrorist attacks.
She is the widow of former Rawthorpe High School student Lindsay, who in 2005 became one of the four West Yorkshire suicide bombers who struck in London.
He and three others detonated rucksack bombs on three Tube trains and a bus, killing themselves and 542 others.
Lindsay and Lewthwaite had been living in Aylesbury with a young child, but after the 7/7 attacks she is thought to have fled to East Africa.
Police investigations have now revealed that 28-year-old Lewthwaite, trawled websites for information on making explosives.
Also found was a poem dedicated to Osama Bin Laden.
The computer led officers to an upmarket Nairobi villa where Lewthwaite lived, and where neighbours said she dressed in Western clothes, rather than the Muslim hijab often associated with her.
The hard drive also contained a cache of pictures showing her wearing vest tops with her auburn hair hanging loose, and which betray a warped obsession with her own image.
In other shots, Lewthwaite – who grew up in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire – is seen for the first time with her youngest child, born last summer.
It means that she now has four children – two with Lindsay and two with her new partner, said to be a Somali.
Information retrieved from the laptop reveals that by March 2011 she had moved into a smart gated estate in Nairobi, paying a monthly rent of about £600.
There she maintained the appearance of an ordinary housewife, using a false South African passport and passing herself off as Natalie Faye Webb.
It is believed that at this time Lewthwaite may have been lying low, waiting for the right moment to join her terrorist co-conspirators.
The laptop was discovered in December at a house in Mombasa where she had been staying.
Lewthwaite came to the attention of Kenyan police following the arrest of fellow Briton Jermaine Grant, 29, in Mombasa, where bomb-making equipment was found in a flat for which she had paid the rent in cash.
