State of emergency in Tunisia extended

The state of emergency in Tunisia has been extended for a further three months.

The UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) imposed a state of emergency in Tunisia after a suicide attack on a police bus on November 24, 2015.

It has been extended a number of times, most recently on February 16 2017.

An inquest into the death of 30 Britons following a terror attack at the resort of Sousse in June 2015 is also currently ongoing at the Royal Courts of Justice in London.

The threat from terror in Tunisia was set to high following an attack on the Bardo museum in Tunis in March 2015.

There are currently no direct flights between the UK and Monastir or Enfidah airports and the FCO is warning against all but essential travel in most areas and against all travel in some parts of the country, including near its border with Libya.
