Interpol has joined agencies from Britain, the United States, Israel and other countries in the Kenyan investigation of the al Shabaab attack at the West Gate Mall in Nairobi in which at least 72 people died including five of the suspected attackers.
The international police body has issued a wanted persons alert or “Red Notice” at Kenya’s request for British woman, Samantha Lewthwaite. Known as the “white widow” by some media, she’s wanted on charges of possession of explosives and conspiracy to commit a felony in 2011, according to Kenya’s Criminal Investigation Department, and not last weekend’s attack.
Investigations into the four day siege are continuing with many details remaining unclear.
The identification by families of loved ones caught up in the siege continues as Kenya enters its third day of mourning.
