The so called 'White Widow' Samantha Lewthwaite has been killed by a sniper in the Ukraine, claims a Russian News Agency.

A British woman terrorist suspect dubbed the 'White Widow' has been killed in Ukraine, it was claimed on Wednesday. Samantha Lewthwaite, 30, was gunned down by a Russian sniper two weeks ago, alleged Regnum news agency in Moscow. One of Britain's most wanted people, she was reported last month as fighting for the Islamic State's terrorists in Syria. The extraordinary Russian claim could not be verified last night.

Apparently a month or so ago, she was reported fighting alongside ISIS fighters. Now it's being claimed she was shot fighting for the Ukraine against the separatists in the East.

It's been suggested that Russia are making these claims in order to bolster its anti-terrorist credentials.

Just what is going on here?

Why would Samantha Lewthwaite, a widow of a suspected Muslim terror suspect, be fighting with Ukraine forces?

She has reportedly been involved in a number of terrorist attacks in Africa, including an attack on English fans watching the England V Italy match during Euro 2012, in a beer garden in Mombasa. It'so also claimed she was responsible for training a group of female suicide bombers in Syria.

Of course, until this has been verified, it is pure speculation. In fact, I'm beginning to question if she is actually a real person and not some bogeyman type person the MSM have invented.

If Russia has no military forces in Ukraine then how did a Russian sniper gun her down in Ukraine?

Well, they're claiming it was a Ukranian separatist.

The Daily Mail have used the words 'Russian Sniper'

Sounds fishy but should be investigated. The unit in the report was also the one where the female pilot was taken to moscow upon capture by rebels.

the leader of the battalion is under investigation by "Russia" for actions taken. The unit is under OSCE and war crime investigations for their actions.

It sounds like it might be a propaganda piece being they are now talking about after 2 weeks and doing so on the day they were taken to task at the UN by the security council as well as the OSCE ambassador to the UN.

Russia accused of exploiting 7/7 victims over claims White Widow has been killed by Sniper in Ukraine as terror-hunters demand to be shown her corpse

It came as intelligence chiefs in Kenya challenged Moscow to 'show us the corpse' as evidence that Lewthwaite really has been killed in a Ukrainian shoot-out in the eastern town of Debaltsevo.

'In particular, she is suspected of the attack on a shopping mall in the Kenyan capital Nairobi.

'Her husband staged the terrorist attack in the London tube in 2005.

'This means that Russian media are speculating on people's grief. This is a cynical lie and we are pleased that more and more people in the West are learning to recognize and uncover Russian propaganda.'

Referring to an earlier fake report, he said: 'This is another invention by Russian media like the "crucified boy".'

He complained: 'This information has nothing to do with reality. This is a fake made up specifically for US and UK audience, since the White Widow story is sensitive for them.'

Looks Like Kenya is now calling BS on Russia.
