Wanted British ‘White Widow’ terrorist Samantha Lewthwaite ‘shot dead by Russian sniper in Ukraine’

A British female terrorist nicknamed the ‘White Widow’ has reportedly been shot and killed in Ukraine. Samantha Lewthwaite, 30, was gunned down by a Russian sniper two weeks ago, according to Moscow news agency Regnum.

One of Britain’s most wanted people, she was reported last month as fighting for the Islamic State’s terrorists in Syria. The extraordinary Russian claim has not yet been formally verified.

Lewthwaite was married to 7/7 suicide bomber Germaine Lindsay, 19, a Jamaican-born Yorkshireman, and allegedly left Britain in 2009 before being linked to atrocities in Africa.

“One of the world’s most wanted terrorists Samantha Lewthwaite who fought as part of a Ukrainian battalion has been killed by a volunteer sniper,” said the news agency report.

“According to our information, the White Widow fought on the side of Ukrainian volunteer battalion Aidar as a sniper.

“She was killed by “a volunteer sniper who came to fight at the Lugansk front from Russia”. The report continued: “The Russian sniper who killed the British terrorist now has a price of nearly one million dollars on his head from Ukrainian special services.”

The extraordinary unconfirmed claim came amid a welter of propaganda from Moscow and Kiev over the Ukrainian crisis.Reports last month claimed Lewthwaite – a former soldier’s daughter – joined Islamic State earlier this year and became one of the most powerful women in the network.

Born in Northern Ireland and schooled in Aylesbury, she was not previously linked to Ukraine.She was responsible for training a special team of female suicide bombers in Syria, it was alleged.
