White Widow Samantha Lewthwaite plotted to attack Kenya’s parliament with a terrorist who was targeted by US forces in Somalia at the weekend, according to a leaked report.

Lewthwaite, 29, is also said to have set her sights on the UN’s Nairobi office as part of a planned campaign of strikes in 2011 and 2012.

Abdulkadir Mohamed Abdulkadir – who is thought to have escaped unharmed in a raid by US Navy Seals on Saturday – is said to have been the ringleader of the conspiracy.
