Two suicide attacks on Thursday targeted security forces in Tunisia’s capital, killing one patrol officer and injuring at least eight people. One attacker detonated explosives in a commercial district near the French Embassy in central Tunis shortly before 11 a.m., apparently targeting a police patrol. Ten minutes later, the second bomber struck an entrance to the anti-terrorism brigade on the outskirts of the city.
“One person blew themselves up behind the back door of the police department in El Gorjani neighborhood,” the Interior Ministry said in a statement.
