LYON, FRANCE – Interpol, the International Police Organization, has put out a red notice for cops around the world to be on the look-out for a woman, described as a mother, a widow and the fugitive terrorist known as the ‘white widow.’

She’s British-born Samantha Lewthwaite, once considered a victim of the 2005 London terrorist bombings that killed 52 people. Her husband was one of the suicide bombers.

Kenya wants her on charges of possession of explosives and conspiracy to commit a felony going back to 2011.

There are reports that a white woman was among the al-Shabaab Somali terrorists who launched that massacre at an upscale shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya.

She apparently used the name Natalie Faye Webb while living in some luxury digs in Kenya, where authorities believe she helped plan the attack.

Some Kenyan authorities believe she died early in the attack, but investigators will have to use DNA tests to determine who’s who among the bodies recovered from the mall.

Meantime, Interpol is asking for help from the public. As always, if you see something, say something.

You know the number.
