STORY HIGHLIGHTS
  • Red notices alert police that a person is wanted
  • Samantha Lewthwaite has been dubbed the “White Widow”
  • Al-Shabaab gunmen stormed a mall in Kenya last weekend

(CNN) — Interpol said Thursday it issued a red notice for Samantha Lewthwaite, the so-called “White Widow,” at the request of Kenyan authorities.

Reports that a white woman was among the terrorists who stormed a mall in Nairobi last weekend have prompted a slew of media speculation about Lewthwaite, a British woman whose husband was one of the suicide bombers in the 2005 London terror attacks.

Known as the “White Widow,” Lewthwaite, 29, has been wanted by international counter-terrorism officials since authorities found bomb-making materials in her Mombasa, Kenya, apartment in 2011. She vanished shortly before a raid.

Red notices issued by the international police agency alert law enforcement around the world that a person is wanted, but they are not arrest warrants.

“By requesting an Interpol Red Notice, Kenya has activated a global ‘tripwire’ for this fugitive,” said Interpol Secretary General Ronald K. Noble.

“Through the Interpol Red Notice, Kenyan authorities have ensured that all 190 member countries are aware of the danger posed by this woman, not just across the region but also worldwide,” he said.

A senior Kenyan official said Tuesday a woman was involved in the attack. Another official said Wednesday that authorities can’t say much about who the woman was or what she was doing.

Al-Shabaab gunmen stormed the Westgate mall Saturday. At least 67 people were killed and as many as 63 people are still unaccounted for.
