17 foreign tourists and 2 locals killed in Tunisia!


Interior ministry spokesman Mohamed Ali Aroui told journalists that the attack involved "two or more terrorists armed with Kalashnikovs".

Tourism is a key sector of Tunisia's economy, still with large numbers of Europeans visiting the country's resorts. However this might not last very long if things continue this way.
In 2002, 19 people, including 11 German tourists, were killed in a bomb blast at a synagogue in the resort of Djerba. Al-Qaeda said it had carried out that attack.
Concerns about security in Tunisia have increased in recent months as neighbouring Libya has become increasingly unstable.  A large number of Tunisians have also left to fight in Syria and Iraq, triggering worries that returning militants could carry out attacks at home.
