A suicide attacker on a motorbike blew himself up outside the US embassy in Tunis, wounding five police officers.
US Embassy officials confirmed the attack in a tweet on its official Twitter feed, and urged people to avoid the area.
Witnesses saw a scorched, damaged motorbike and a damaged police vehicle a few metres from the embassy’s main gate.
The UK FCO updated their Travel Advice stating that if you are in the area, remain vigilant and follow the advice of the local security authorities.
