Suicide Bomber Strikes Tunisian Beach Resort

Believed to be the first suicide bombing in Tunisia, no one other than the bomber was killed


A man has blown himself up at a Mediterranean resort town in Tunisia which is popular with British holidaymakers.

The man, who was wearing a belt of explosives, detonated his charge near the Riadh Palm Hotel in Sousse—moments before security forces foiled a second similar attack elsewhere.

Witnesses told Tunisian media that the man appeared to be about to enter the hotel when the bomb detonated.
