The final moments of a machine gun-wielding terrorist, who slaughtered 37 innocent people and injured another 36 on a beach in Tunisia today, have been captured on camera.
AK47 in hand, he prowls the streets of Sousse, the popular resort town where he opened fire on the beach packed with holidaymakers.
The assassin is believed to be Seifeddine Yacoubi, 23, an aviation student from the Tunisian city of Kairouan.
It has emerged that a heroic British man, who was shot three times on the beach during the attack, bravely used his body as a human shield to protect his fiancee from being killed by the maniac gunman.
At least five British tourists were killed during the bloody onslaught and that number is expected to rise, Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond has said. Lorna Carty from Ireland and 60-year-old James McGuire are thought to be among those deceased.
It has also been reported that a 16-year-old British boy saw his parents and grandmothers gunned down.
The massacre took place at about the same time as the bombing of a Shi’ite mosque in Kuwait, where 25 worshippers were killed, and another attack on a United States-owned factory in France in which a man was beheaded.
