    The British media seem hellbent to romanticize the comings and goings of 29-year-old Samantha Lewthwaite, who is believed to have fled Kenya to Somalia after the Nairobi shopping mall massacre in September. The authorities of many lands continue to miss those comings and goings, somehow missing Lewthwaite’s cross border movements even when she has four children in tow. There have since been four reported sightings of Lewthwaite in Somalia, who remains at large.

    It was only a second, no more than a click of the fingers. In that time the lives of all of us in that packed Tube carriage were changed for ever. It was as dramatic as being on a sunny beach one moment and finding yourself in the bowels of hell the next. In the aftermath of the blast, I drifted in and out of consciousness. The air was acrid, saturated with dust and the stench of burning electrical cables in the twisted metal shell that had been the carriage. People screamed. Then, after time, a man held my hand....

    INVESTIGATORS have established a firm link between al-Qaeda and the London bombers after an Islamist terrorist in jail in America identified the British man who led the murderous attacks 10 days ago. Security officials in the United States have confirmed that self-confessed al-Qaeda member Mohammed Junaid Babar had admitted knowing Mohammed Sidique Khan, the oldest of the British bombers who killed at least 55 people. Babar, who was arrested after returning from an al-Qaeda "terror summit" in Pakistan early last year, identified Khan from photographs shown to him late last week. The revelation that an al-Qaeda member was associating with...

    LONDON - Prime Minister Tony Blair warned on Saturday that an "evil ideology" of Islamic extremism was bent on spreading terror through the West, and authorities on three continents widened investigations into the London terrorist bombings. The death toll rose to 55. Police in the northern city of Leeds searched an Islamic shop, the home of an Egyptian biochemist and a third address for more evidence after investigators reportedly found traces of explosives in the Egyptian's bathtub. Also, police moved the twisted wreckage of the double-decker bus where one of the bombers and 13 other people died. The bus became...

She sobbed: “He wasn’t the sort of person who’d do this. I won’t believe it until I see proof.” JAMAL did work experience with his local council while still at school — and said he “thoroughly enjoyed it.” His experiences during the two-week stint — which included filing, computer work and health and safety inspections — were featured in a storybook on a schools website.

    SECURITY chiefs fear an al-Qaeda cell funded by the British “White Widow” plotted to bomb a German railway station, The Sun can reveal. The attack in Bonn would have resulted in a massacre like the one in the Spanish capital Madrid in 2004 which left 191 people dead. But the device failed to explode and was disarmed before it could detonate. Intelligence sources in Germany say that al-Qaeda was behind the conspiracy — which encompassed “many operatives” overseas, including wanted Brit Samantha Lewthwaite. Last night a source said: “Remember this was a primed device that was of the size of...

Her father, Allen, was a former British Army soldier-turned-lorry driver; her mother, Christine, a homemaker. She has one older brother, Allen, and friends recall that as early as junior high, Samantha Laithwaite was a pretty and popular girl. When her parents broke up in 1994, she took it hard but seemingly no...
