London: The fugitive White Widow, Samantha Lewthwaite, had rented a secret house just 100 yards away from the Westgate shopping mall, where the al Qaeda-linked terror group killed upto 150 people last week, to plot the bloody siege, security forces said.

The widow of 7/7 suicide bomber Germaine Lindsay and a mother-of-three, who has become the world`s most wanted female terrorist, is said to have plotted the slaughter with the al-Shabaab terror group in revenge for the capture of her right hand man, Mirror reports.

The Interpol has issued a worldwide alert to find the 29-year-old Muslim-convert female, the report added.

A Turkish man, who was arrested attempting to board an international flight at Nairobi`s airport on Tuesday, is being interrogated over the property allegedly used to plot the bloodshed and a shop hired by the militants to store a deadly arsenal of weapons in preparation for the siege.
