You can watch it on BBC iplayer.....
Wow those Tunisian guys were so brave!
For anyone doubting the FCO's travel advice and slating them for it should watch this - it is obvious that there are not enough measures in place to protect tourists. The first policeman on scene refused to shoot the terrorist and a civilian Tunisian had to take the Policemans gun to try and shoot the guy!!
I know terrorists can attack anywhere but really watching this was horrifying - he basically got carte blanche for almost 45 minutes to kill and maim tourists but he could have got so many more if it hadn't been for the brave locals. I know we slate Tunisian rats but these guys really did put their lives on the line. Shocking!
I cried watching it
The inaction of the Tunisian Police was a bloody disgrace, its disgusting. And what do members think about the failure of the uk FO/Travel Agents to inform holidaymakers of the ISIS Warning to Christians which was issued in May after the Bardo shootings saying 'not to come to Tunisia this summer.'.....only weeks before these shootings. Many people would also have been totally unaware of the suicide bomber who tried unsuccessfullyto blow up the Riadh Palms in Sousse in 2013 as well, thankfully only suceeding in blowing himself up instead on the beach. UK Intellegnce must have been aware of the existence of this threat, so why was it not passed on to the travelling public? The saying 'blood on their hands' springs to mind. It would not surprise me if Legal Actions were not commenced shortly by some of the victms or their families. Watching this was so upsetting, it brought me to tears. If it were not for the local Tunisians that helped the carnage would surely have been even worse, so well done them!
To be fair I was aware of this incident but took faith in the fact he was stopped in his tracks - I even stayed at the hotel he blew himself up at just a week later. It wasn't hidden it was on the newscast and on the FCO travel advice.
Did it stop me....no? I took it as an isolated incident. More worrying is the direct threats targeted at tunisian holidaying tourists - shocking that this wasn't made public.
What no one has picked up on is that people knew the attack was going to happen.
I saw a sky news correspondent say in an interview that he heard that something was going to happen on the beach that day so he stayed away!!!!! Wtf.. Why not alert people? Most likely he wanted a good news story..
But also why have authorities not questioned this reporter on who gave him the intell, it should be followed up!!
A very good friend of mine works in the security field and Tunisia is considered extremely dangerous. The entire Marine Nato must not enter the Tunisian soil, because much violence done do not come to the public.
It's the rats you need fear more.I too have heard this from US soldiers and some in intelligence. If those soldiers, who are highly trained won't step foot in Tunisia, then I won't either. That's enough to deter me. I've told a few military friends I wanted to visit my rat when him and I talked, each one of them sent warnings to me. Dont do it. They would say, never worry about the crime you see on the news from there, worry about what they dont report, that's the scary part. Tunisians have no loyalty to me or any tourists. Why would they protect me? The soldiers from my country cant even visit there. They would get in trouble. Its banned. Only military I know from my country thats there are on official government orders (e.g., special forces). I wouldnt step foot in that country if it was a free paid vacation.
I disagree....I personally put them both in the same bracket in terms of danger....they both pose a massive threat to our health and safety. In fact, a massive threat to our lives.It's the rats you need fear more.
We do...but it is different in Tunisia....it is a bigger problem.Yes there is terrorists we have them in uk too
you is more safe in a moslim country that in west when it is talk about terror . It is can happend every whereI think we hear more about tunisia because it is freely spoken about here.
Yes the uk foil many terrorist attacks daily but we do not hear about them i on a personal level do not feel threatened here, i am not scared. Yes there Always could be a chance an attack will happen but its the same as any country.
Muslims have more to fear than us, isis target them more than us because they wont bow down to sharia law and live like how they want them too.
Yup, and that is the difference.....our intelligence and security are strong....they foil many attacks.Yes the uk foil many terrorist attacks daily
