The US reportedly bombed an Islamic State camp in Libya this morning where approximately 40 people were killed - including senior Tunisian militant Noureddine Chouchane.

Chouchane is suspected of being behind two attacks, including one on a beach resort in Sousse where 38 people died. The majority of those were British holidaymakers.

Today's air strikes hit the training camp in Sabratha, around 43 miles west of Tripoli.

Based at a farmhouse, the camp was targeted at approximately 3.30am local time - where 30 suspected ISIS recruits were killed.

The mayor of Sabratha put the death toll at 41, and said the majority of those killed were Tunisians.

"It is vital communities have complete confidence in their police. That means nobody should be above the law, including armed officers.

"The police do one of the hardest jobs there is and they must feel protected. But this needs to be reviewed in a calm and collected manner and not in a knee-jerk response to terror attacks", he added.

Armed police officers 'should not be treated as criminals'

Former Met Police commissioner Lord Blair has said that armed police "should not be treated as criminals" if they shoot someone "because they have to".

He told the Sky News Murnaghan programme: "These are men and women who go to work to do an incredibly dangerous job for which they volunteer and if they do their duty and shoot somebody because they have to ... they should not be treated as criminals."

His comments came as it emerged David Cameron has ordered a review of legal protection for police who use guns.

It also follows an officer's arrest and interview under caution after a man was shot dead during a police operation in Wood Green.

I don't know the details of the case but in the latest shooting case in north London they have arrested the officer. That is not necessary.

He can be called in to the police station with his solicitor and interviewed under caution. They are not going to search his home for anything.

It seems to me that this is sending a very bad message to the rest of the police officers.

– Lord Blair
