There is an explosion in Tunisia. The explosion happens near the US embassy. Two men on a motorcycle drive into a police car. Both men and one police officer die.

Five other people end up in a hospital. Tunisia officials say that it is a terrorist attack. However, they do not know which terrorist group the two men belong to.

In 2015, three terrorist attacks happen in Tunisia. The situation in the country is dangerous. The Tunisian government must control the situation. There are terrorist groups. They want to kill people. It is not safe to travel to some parts of Tunisia.

Difficult words: embassy (a place where officials of a foreign country work in a different country), terrorist attack (when somebody tries to kill people because they have different ideas), terrorist group (a group of people who to kill people with different ideas, often political).
