The Islamist terror assault that began this weekend at the Westgate Shopping Mall in Nairobi, Kenya is said to be the brainchild of and led by Samantha Lewthwaite known as the ‘white widow’ of London 7/7 bomber Jermaine Lindsay.
Shortly around noon Saturday, jihadists tossing grenades stormed the Nairobi shopping mall, shooting patrons with AK-47s while ordering all Muslims out of the mall.
They then began testing those who remained by ordering them to name the prophet Mohammed’s mother or recite the Koran to prove that they were Muslim. Failure to do so resulted in death. Jihadists then went about the gruesome tasks of chopping off the hands of the dead and burning their faces to conceal their identity. The ages of the dead range from 2 to 78.
Soldiers said a white woman wearing a veil was shouting orders to gunmen in Arabic during the bloody massacre inside the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi.
Islamist terror group Al Shabaab claimed it carried out the atrocity in which three Britons were killed and 175 people were left injured.
