Lewthwaite was dubbed a 'white widow' after the death of her husband Jermaine Lindsay, the suicide bomber died in the 7/7 attacks on the London underground in 2005.


It has also been learned that she is secretly married to a former officer in the Kenyan Navy. Information recently gleaned has shone a spotlight on the mother of four who converted to Islam as a schoolgirl and is now the world's most wanted woman.
