US ‘targets Tunisia beach massacre organiser’ in strikes against Islamic State in Libya

The US has reportedly bombed an Islamic State camp in Libya in an effort to kill one of the masterminds behind last summer’s massacre of tourists on a Tunisian beach.

American warplanes were targeting Noureddine Chouchane, a Tunisian terrorist who helped organise the attack which killed 30 Britons at a beach hotel last June, according to the New York Times.

US intelligence has not yet determined whether Chouchane was killed but the bombing killed more than 30 other ISIL recruits.
