One policeman died and several others were injured when two suicide bomber blew themselves up in front of the US embassy in Tunis, in the most serious attack in Tunisia in months.

Tunisian authorities said the attackers arrived at the site on a motorbike and detonated explosives. The embassy was placed on lockdown pending an investigation into the incident.

Images taken at the scene show a street littered with fragments as well as vehicles and a road barrier charred by the blast.

The embassy confirmed there was an explosion near the compound and advised people to avoid the area, but wouldn’t immediately offer any details.

“Emergency personnel are responding to an explosion that occurred near the US Embassy in Tunis. Please avoid the area and monitor local media for updates,” it said in a statement.

While there was no immediate confirmation that the bombing was terrorism-related, Tunisia has seen a spike in terrorist incidents in recent years.

In June 2019 two suicide bombers targeted officers of the law in two parts of Tunis, killing one person and injuring nine others. The terrorist group Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) claimed responsibility for the attack.

Tunisia is rigged by the Muslim Brotherhood.
Islamist “political” party = 100% guaranteed Islamist terrorist attacks, period! Coran promotes terrorism, read Surat 9 if you don’t believe it!
How surprising, Tunisia has became one of the biggest exporters of jihdists despite being a small country!
The “Brotherhood” can be found in the shadows, pulling the strings of “global jihad” in near all the cases, they are a 5th column and should be dealt with!
