New photos have emerged of Samantha Lewthwaite, which paint the so-called "White Widow" not as a deadly terrorist but as a doting mother.
The pictures show Lewthwaite, 29, cuddling with her baby daughter Surajah in 2010. The child is believed to have been fathered by Abdi Wahid, a former Navy officer who reportedly defected to the al-Qaida-linked, Somalia-based terrorist group al-Shabab in 2007.
Other photos include Lewthwaite at home with her other three children. Her two oldest were from her marriage to suicide-bomber Germaine Lindsay, who killed 26 people when he blew up a London subway train in a 2005 coordinated terror attack.

The identity of the father of the White Widow's third child — a son born in 2009 — is unknown, according to The Telegraph.
Lewthwaite was born in Northern Ireland and grew up in Aylesbury, a London suburb. She reportedly converted to Islam when she was a teenager, and is one of the top suspected al-Shabab terrorists.
Rumors swirled last month that she was involved in the Westgate mall attack in Kenya
after an intelligence officer and two soldiers told reporters that one of the militants was a white British woman, but police have yet to officially link her to the massacre.
International counterterrorism officials have reportedly been searching for the White Widow ever since 2011, when bomb-making materials were found during a raid on her Mombasa, Kenya, apartment. She disappeared before the search.
Last month, Interpol issued an international red notice on Lewthwaite.
