Intelligence sources say Lewthwaite has married Hassan Maalim Ibrahim, a suspected warlord and senior al-Shabaab commander, in Somalia. An unnamed source tells the Mirror:
Her in-laws will treat her very well as she is now one of them and part of one of the large clans. Samantha is in a heavily guarded village in a no-go area for outsiders. But we’re sure she’ll move around which is why she needs to get in with the family.At the moment she hardly leaves her grass thatch house. She wears black socks and gloves and hijab to cover her white skin so spies won’t see her. Samantha has given herself great protection with this marriage.
