At least two people are dead, including one police officer, and nine others were injured on Thursday when two suicide bombers attacked security forces in two separate attacks in the capital city of Tunis, in Tunisia.
The first attack targeted a police patrol in central Tunis. Shortly after, a second suicide bomber blew himself up near a police station, also in the capital. One of the attacks was barely 200 meters from the French embassy, according to a report by Asharq Al-Awsat.
The attackers have not yet been identified, Interior Ministry spokesperson Sofian Za’ak said in a statement in which he called on the public to “show strength” and not to panic.
