国际刑警通缉白寡妇

Interpol issued a wanted persons alert at Kenya's request on Thursday for Samantha Lewthwaite, a British citizen dubbed the "White Widow," without mentioning her suspected role in the Nairobi mall attack.

The international police agency's so-called "red alert" notice said Lewthwaite, 29, is wanted by Kenya on charges of possession of explosives and conspiracy to commit a felony dating back to December 2011.

Lewthwaite, also believed to use the alias "Natalie Webb," is the widow of Germaine Lindsay, one of the Islamist bombers who carried out attacks on public transport in London in July 2005, and is thought to have left Britain several years ago.

South African Interior Minister Naledi Pandor told a news conference in Pretoria on Thursday that Lewthwaite had entered South Africa in July 2008 with an illegal passport, which she last used in February 2011.

She is wanted in connection with an alleged plot to attack luxury hotels and restaurants in Kenya.

British police have cited Lewthwaite as a possible suspect in last week's siege of a Nairobi shopping mall by Islamists from Somalia's al-Shabaab movement.

Some witnesses said that women were among the attackers in the four-day mall attack, which killed 67 people. But al-Shabaab denied on its Twitter feed using "our sisters" in its military operations.

An Interpol spokesman declined to say when Kenya lodged its request for the alert.

"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," Interpol Secretary Ronald Noble said in a statement.

Late on Wednesday night, al-Shabaab's leader for the first time confirmed claims by his group's members that it was behind the attack on the mall.

In an audio posted on the al-Shabaab-linked website www.somalimemo.net, Ahmed Godane, also known as Mukhtar Abu al-Zubayr, said the attack was in retaliation for Kenya's incursion in October 2011 into southern Somalia to crush the insurgents.

 

简明释义:总部位于法国里昂的国际刑警组织26日表示,在肯尼亚政府的要求下,该组织对绰号为“白寡妇”的英国女子萨曼莎发出通缉令。国际刑警组织表示,该女子被肯尼亚政府指控在2011年12月期间涉嫌持有爆炸物并有意在肯尼亚犯下重罪。国际刑警组织此次发出“红色警报”,要求成员国协助逮捕该嫌疑犯。虽然国际刑警组织没有把此次逮捕与肯尼亚内罗毕韦斯特盖特购物中心的恐怖袭击联系在一起,不过媒体猜测萨曼莎非常可能与此次恐怖袭击相关。萨曼莎是2005年伦敦地铁******************式炸弹袭击者之一林赛的遗孀。
