Two suicide bombers today on the Main Street in Tunis! I can’t spell it’s name! Tunisia is NOT safe. It’s even worse than when I was there! Travel agencies need to stop going there! Tourists need to stop going there! They depend on tourism! When the tourism money dries up, they will do something! They need to stop these Bezness fraudster prostitutes first thing! The danger to everybody’s health is truly a potential mass disaster! They will do anything with anybody from anywhere and without protection! Just think of the potential repercussions from that.....all over the world! It truly terrifies me!
It's bad there right now if any of our members is there please keep safe.. ❤

The Independent
Two suicide bombers have blown themselves up in separate attacks in Tunisia’s capital city, Tunis, killing one police officer.
At least eight people have also been injured in the double attack on Thursday, the government said.
The first bomber targeted a police patrol in Charles de Gaulle Street in central Tunis. One police officer was killed and at least one other officer and three civilians were wounded, the Interior Ministry said.

Shortly afterwards, a second suicide bomber blew himself up near a police station in the al-Qarjani district. Four people were wounded in the attack.
Heavily-armed police have cordoned off the sites of both attacks.

Sofian Zaak, a spokesperson for the Interior Ministry, said the bombers had not yet been identified.
One man who witnessed the attack told Reuters: "I was shopping with my daughter and we heard a big explosion. We saw the body of the terrorist lying on the ground near a police vehicle after he blew himself up."
Video footage posted on Facebook Live of the aftermath of the first attack shows injured people walking along the blood spattered street and a man being pulled from a white pick-up truck.
In another clip, a man is shown lying in the street with blood pouring from his head.

The last suicide bombing to hit Tunis was in November 2015 when a bus carrying members of the presidential guard was targeted.
Twelve people were killed and 16 injured, with ISIS later claiming responsibility for the attack.
Five months earlier, 38 people, including many British tourists, were killed when a gunman attacked two hotels on Tunisia's coast.
Tunisia has been battling militant groups operating in remote areas near the border with Algeria since an uprising overthrew autocratic leader Zine Abidine Ben Ali in 2011. High unemployment has also stoked unrest in recent years.



I don't care what anyone says to the contrary.....that country is NOT safe!
I'm sure the rats will be convincing their victims it is though, as my rat did to keep me there after Bardo, Sousse, the Presidential Guards and the attempt on the shopping mall. It is not safe.....

The US Embassy in Tunisia closed its doors to the public today due to security reasons.
“Due to security concerns, the US Embassy will be closed to the public on Monday, July 1st, except for emergency services,” the embassy said in a statement.
The move came after two suicide bombings took place in the Tunisian capital on Thursday, killing one policeman and injuring eight people.
Daesh claimed responsibility for the attacks.
The first explosion took place near a police patrol on the central Charles de Gaulle Street, not far from the French Embassy, shortly before 11:00 local time [10:00 GMT].
Around the same time, a second attack occurred near the entrance to the Tunisian government’s anti-terrorism brigade headquarters in Al-Qarjani district.

If you are American and you need emergency help, please try the Canadian embassy. They may be able to help. Canadians have helped Americans in the past and will be able to at least advise a solution.

It will remain closed until a thorough investigation is completed. All embassy families will be in lock down and told not to venture out. Higher ups does this when something like that happens. It probably won’t open back up until they have been given the all clear. But if people still need embassy help in the event there is an emergency, there will be someone there to assist z

My rat told me that nothing happened “it’s just a political game” :whistle:
Shows how a rats mind works :eek:
That’s very true. I was told that the Kantoui attacks were organised by the government! That France was behind it and wants to put their own administration there. They totally believe the propaganda and protested that’s it’s totally safe and stories of cells operating there is lies. It’s always another country behind it trying to keep Tunisia poor. Yet they know their own government is rife with corruption.

BOMB BLAST Tunisia – ‘Suicide bomber blows himself up at bus stop in Tunis’ – days after deadly bomb attacks rocked capital

A SUICIDE bomber has blown himself up at a bus stop in Tunisia today after being surrounded by cops, according to reports.


A massive blast was heard in the country's capital Tunis after the attacker detonated a belt packed with explosives, reports claim.

Officials said cops had opened fire on the man they described as a wanted militant called Aymen Smiri, Reuters reported.


The attacker is understood to have been killed in the explosion in the Mnihla area, but there has been no reports yet of further injuries or deaths.



It comes just five days after Tunisia's capital was rocked by two suicide bomb attacks, killing a police officer and wounding at least eight others.


In the first attack, a police patrol car was targeted near the French embassy in the centre of Tunis at around 11am on Thursday.


A police officer was killed and three civilians were wounded in that blast.

Body parts were strewn beside a pockmarked vehicle on the corner of Rue Charles de Gaulle and Habib Bourguiba Avenue in the city centre near western hotels.



Footage taken at the scene shows bystanders helping the wounded, including at least one person lying on the ground.


It was around 100 yards from France's embassy and also close to the Palmarium shopping centre which was targeted by a female suicide bomber in October.


At the same time as the first attack, a second suicide bomber struck one of the entrances of the headquarters of the government's anti-terrorism brigade, on the outskirts of the city.


Four police officers were wounded in the second attack and heavily armed police cordoned off streets throughout the city.

SHOW OF DEFIANCE

Witnesses rushed away from the scene of the first attack while the body of one suicide bomber lay on the ground.


"I was shopping with my daughter and we heard a big explosion," said a man who give his name only as Mohamed.


"We saw the body of the terrorist lying on the ground near a police vehicle after he blew himself up."


Interior Ministry spokesman Sofian Zaak said the attackers had not yet been identified, and he called on the public to show strength and not panic.


People appeared to heed that message and within minutes of the attacks, they could be seen sitting as usual in cafes up and down Habib Bourghiba Avenue.


In a show of more open defiance, some 300 people gathered on the same street and held up pamphlets saying: "We do not fear terror, Tunisia is no place for terrorism."


They chanted the national anthem and slogans praising the security forces.


Habib Bourguiba Avenue is the heart of the commercial and tourist district and is lined with western hotels and a theatre.


British tourists have only recently started returning to Tunisia after the Sousse beach massacre and Bardo museum shooting in 2015, which ISIS claimed responsibility for.

The Foreign Office urged travellers to "remain vigilant", keep up to date with developments and follow the advice of local authorities.


Tunisia has been battling militant groups operating in remote areas near the border with Algeria since an uprising overthrew autocratic leader Zine Abidine Ben Ali in 2011.


The attacks come as Tunisia's 92-year-old President Beji Caid Essebsi was taken to hospital after falling seriously ill.

What a waste! I can never understand that frame of mind. My rat used to say puzzling comments to me. On one side, he would say that Islam teaches that you will go to hell if you commit suicide. On the other side, he would say that he has no fear of death and doesn’t care if he lives or dies. Some weird and conflicting thoughts in that boy’s head! :Evil: :rolleyes:

Now me, it's my firm belief, that virgins are running low in Tunisia, while in paradise they are legion. Some terrorists might find that tempting ;)

Ya, Tunisia is safe, afterall.....it's a regular occurrence to find explosives under trees :rolleyes:

El-Intilaka neighbourhood: 10 kg of explosives found
03/07/2019 16:28, TUNIS/Tunisia
(TAP)- 10 kg of explosives were found Wednesday in el-Intilaka neighbourhood, Ariana District National Guard sources told TAP.

The explosive devices were hidden under a tree in the couryard of El-Ghofrane mosque. They were taken for testing.

A judicial investigation was initiated to look into a possible link between the explosives seized and last Thursday's double suicide attack in Tunis and the one in Intilika neighbourhod on Tuesday night.

Police reinforcements are presently on the spot to search for explosives and arms in the mosque and its vicinity, the same sourcess said.

This follows recent investigations which revealed that "extremely dangerous" terrorists are seeking to target police patrols and sensitive sites in Greater Tunis.

Police investigations are underway after a terrorist, Aymen Smiri, detonated his explosive belt in Intilaka neighbourhood.
