The US has targeted one of the Isis leaders behind the terrorist attack that killed 30 British holidaymakers in Tunisia in a series of air strikes.
There has been no confirmation of the death of Noureddine Chouchane but he was believed to be at a camp in the group’s territories in neighbouring Libya that was struck early this morning.
An official told the New York Times that American fighter jets hit the stronghold near Sabratha, west of Tripoli, and killed dozens of Isis recruits.
Chouchane had been linked to June’s hotel attack in Sousse, which killed 38 people, and the massacre that killed 22 people at the Bardo National Museum in Tunis. Read the full story here.
