Thanks for keeping us up to date in this terrible day. I hope Tunisia will tight up the security. I am sure the country leaders are working to implement measures on the real menace of jihadism

I've just seen this on Facebook. I believe it's the first major incident involving tourists and unfortunately gives the lie to those of us who've always said that tourists weren't at risk. Whatever the immediate outcome of this attack it will undoubtedly do untold damage to the tourist industry, which I very much doubt either the government nor those of us who are regular visitors will be able to repair, at least in the short term.
