`White Widow` Samantha taunts detectives with Jimmy Cliff`s Reggae song

Terrorists hiding Samantha Lewthwaite, dubbed the White Widow, have taunted detectives by revealing she recently travelled through a remote town in Somalia.

London: Terrorists hiding Samantha Lewthwaite, dubbed the White Widow, have taunted detectives by revealing she recently travelled through a remote town in Somalia.

A message posted in the last few days on Lewthwaite`s Twitter account, quoting lyrics from the song Many Rivers To Cross by reggae legend Jimmy Cliff, gave the first clue about her whereabouts since Nairobi`s shopping mall massacre.

Security officers believe that Lewthwaite may have been behind last month`s terrorists attack on the Westgate mall.

According to the Mirror, the message on the account read: "Many rivers to cross, but I can`t seem to find my way over wandering, I am lost as I travel along the Mountains of Galgala..."

It refers to a remote area of Somalia close to the town of Bari and is thought to have been posted on Lewthwaite`s behalf by Al-shabaab terrorists.
Lewthwaite, who is the widow of 7/7 bomber Jermaine Lindsay, has been on the run since last year when police foiled a plot to blow up Western hotels in Mom.
Investigators have long been monitoring Lewthwaite`s Twitter account in the hunt for the world`s most wanted woman.
In the last few months it is thought militants from the Al-Shabab, who are helping hide her, have been posting messages on her behalf, the report added.
