Second Tunisia terror attack foiled: Five extremists are shot dead in Islamic stronghold as thousands of British tourists are evacuated
Five Islamic extremists on the verge of carrying out another terrorist attack on holidaymakers in Tunisia were yesterday shot dead as thousands of tourists were flown home. Security forces tracked down eight ISIS suspects believed to be about to launch another bloodthirsty attack on tourists, with five of the militants killed near the town of El Ktar. The three others escaped and are still on the run. The alert comes as 3,000 Britons are evacuated from the north African country, which is still reeling from the massacre in Sousse (soldiers guarding the beach pictured) which saw 38 holidaymakers – 30 British – slaughtered by an ISIS gunman. The Foreign Office believes another attack is ‘highly likely’.
