Terror attack in Tunisia - level 3

Terror attack in Tunisia - level 3

02-07-2015 07:00

At least 27 have been killed in a terrorist attack on a number of Tunisian tourist hotels.

Tunisian TV ran this footage from one hotel close to where the attacks took place.

A security source said the police had shot dead one of the gunmen who was armed with a Kalashnikov assault rifle. Holidaymakers heard the attack taking place while sunbathing and were told to take shelter inside.

Sousse is one of Tunisia’s most popular beach resorts, drawing visitors from Europe and neighbouring North African countries.

The country has been on high alert since March, when Islamist militant gunmen attacked the Bardo Museum in Tunis. That attack killed a group of foreign tourists in one of the worst recent attacks in the North African country.

Difficult words: footage (video), assault rifle (a lightweight rifle – a long gun for shooting at distant targets), draw (attract).
