    Police given permission to shoot to kill without warning

    According to this article, from today's Guardian, police have been given permission to shoot to kill anyone they believe may be carrying suicide bombs without any warnings. The article does not make clear who exactly gave them that permission, and there are eyewitness accounts from the shooting of Jean Charles de Menezes just a few days ago that he was not given a warning by police:

    Insiders say there may have been flaws in the operation that led to Mr De Menezes's shooting, which is being investigated by the Independent Police Complaints Commission. There are questions about why the intelligence was so faulty and about the identification of Mr De Menezes as a target. The decision to let him run and get on a bus is also suspect, although it may have been taken in the hope of finding out who he might meet.
