Aeveral people wounded and a police officer has been killed in a suicide bomb attack in Tunisia’s capital Tunis on Thursday.
A suicide bomber blew himself up in front of a police patrol in Charles de Gaulle street, close to the French embassy, Reuters reports.
Two police officers and three civilians were injured, according to the interior ministry.
A second attacker blew himself up shortly afterwards near a police station in the capital’s al-Qarjani district, the ministry said. Four people were wounded in that attack.
No-one has claimed responsibility.
There was a similar attack on capital’s main thoroughfare – Avenue Habib Bourguiba – late last year, when nine people were hurt.
Back in 2015 an assault on a museum in the capital left 22 people dead. That attack was carried out by militants linked to the Islamic State group.
