Various of military band playing STORYLINE British Prime Minister David Cameron toured Tripoli's famous Martyrs' Square amid tight security during an unannounced visit to the Libyan capital on Thursday. Cameron was in the country to hold held bilateral talks to explore what support and expertise Britain could offer to Libya to strengthen its security and defeat militants. Shortly after arriving Cameron told a news conference that he was "delighted" that police would be able to visit Libya and investigate the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over the Scottish town. The attack killed 270 people. The death last spring of Abdel Baset al-Megrahi - a former Libyan intelligence agent and the only man convicted over the bombing - renewed pleas from victims' relatives for further investigation of the bombing. After the fall of dictator Moammar Gadhafi, Britain asked Libya's new rulers to help fully investigate the incident. Cameron also said Britain was prepared to provide training and advice to Libya amid growing concerns over security in the region, pledging to help Libya's police and army. During a visit to a police training centre on the outskirts of the Libyan capital on Thursday, he told police recruits "you have our support." "The role that you are now undertaking is even more important than the revolution you were part of to get rid of Gadhafi and give Libya her freedom," he said. Britain will double the number of advisers working on training Libyan forces to 16, bring the number of police advisers to three and embed another expert with Libya's ministry of the interior. Members of the Libyan navy will also be invited to attend a five-month training course in the UK, and Britain will fund a 4.5 (m) million pound (7.1 million US dollar ) job creation package focusing on ex-militia. The prime minister's visit to the Libyan capital - shortly after a stop in Algeria, where he struck a security partnership - came just days after the British Foreign Office warned of a potential threat against the British embassy in Tripoli. He last visited Libya in September 2011, just after the fall of Gadhafi. The prime minister is later expected to travel to Liberia for a development conference.
