`White Widow` Samantha Lewthwaite favoured Hiroshima bombing
London: Samantha Lewthwaite, dubbed the ` White Widow`, led a classroom debate in favour of the Hiroshima A-bomb when she was just 15.
The terrorist fugitive left fellow classmates in a history lesson stunned as she expressed her extremist views over the Second World War attack on Hiroshima that killed up to 140,000 people.
According to the Mirror, Lewthwaite also idolized former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher as a schoolgirl and regarded her as a heroine.
A former school friend of Lewthwaite said she will never forget the moment she argued in favour of nuclear weapons. It was in history in front of everyone.
The friend claimed that Lewthwaite led a debate in favour of dropping the bomb on Hiroshima. She was insane about it and had to be told to calm down.
Shortly after leaving school, Lewthwaite started wearing a black hijab.
Security services worldwide are hunting for Lewthwaite, who is allegedly behind the Nairobi mall massacre.
