Arrests following Tunisia terror attack

Tunisian security forces have arrested 12 suspects following a terrorist attack in the resort town of Sousse on Friday.

Officials said they were still hunting for two people, both of whom are suspected of having trained in Libya with the gunman who killed 38 people.

Most of those killed on a beach in Sousse were from the UK.

Islamic State has claimed the attack as its own.

No information has been released on where the arrests were made or who those captured are.


Tunisian authorities have identified 28-year-old student Seifeddine Rezgui as the gunman who carried out the attack.

They have released photos of two suspects, Bin Abdallah and Rafkhe Talari - friends of Rezgui that the police have yet to locate.
