But the deadly chaos of Yemen’s long civil war has left it trapped with no way out.

The Sun understands no information was received on the exact location of 37-year-old Lewthwaite For me yes.

Yet security sources saw no evidence to convince her that she is dead. Instead, it is believed to be embroiled in bitter fighting between government forces and rival IS and al-Qaeda groups.

A source said: “Lewthwaite’s last known location is Yemen. But trying to get information is as difficult as in Syria when the IS regime was at its peak.

‘TYPICAL ENGLISH ROSE’

“There is practically no Western presence in Yemen because it is so dangerous. And in the absence of evidence to the contrary, it is assumed that it is alive and that it is supported by extremists. “

Next month will mark a decade since Lewthwaite, the daughter of a builder from Aylesbury, Bucks, became the most wanted woman in the world. She is said to have used her life story to become an al-Qaeda poster girl.

She was added to Interpol’s red list of fugitives in 2013 after a massacre in a shopping center in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, in which 67 people died.

Police in Kenya believe he played a key role in fundraising and training for terrorism.

A Muslim friend even described her as “your typical English rose” in a documentary.

As a teenager she was seduced by the teachings of the extremist cleric Trevor Forrest or Sheikh Abdullah el-Faisal. Lewthwaite visited him in prison in 2006.

Through el-Faisal she met her first husband, the bomber Germaine Lindsay who killed himself and 26 other people on the subway on July 7, 2005.

She keeps moving. We think he’s using plastic surgery including his nose.

He later told The Sun that he abhorred his actions. Cradling her newborn daughter, she said: “We too are victims”.

Lewthwaite, a mother of five, fled the UK for South Africa in 2009, then crossed over to Tanzania in 2011 and then to Kenya.

Investigators later tracked her down to Somalia, where she took refuge at al-Qaeda’s al-Shabaab branch.

And he is believed to have traveled 200 miles across the Gulf of Aden to Yemen in 2018.

Many believe that the chances of Lewthwaite ever being caught are now slim. In providing evidence at a court hearing in 2014, a Kenyan detective admitted: “She is a multiple identification person. She keeps moving. We think she is using plastic surgery including her nose.”

Others believe it is more likely to meet its creator than justice.

Just last week, a British jihadist who defected to IS from al-Qaeda in Yemen was killed in a battle.

And a Whitehall source told The Sun: “Just like in Syria, British citizens who choose to travel to fight in Yemen are taking huge risks with their lives.”
