Security has been stepped up at resorts in Tunisia in the wake of last week’s massacre of tourists at the Bardo museum in the capital of Tunis.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office said the country’s interior ministry had taken the steps.

“The Ministry of the Interior had previously warned of a threat to attack industrial and tourist sites. It has increased the level of security, including in some tourist areas,” the FCO said in an updated travel advisory.

“Further attacks are possible. Be especially vigilant and follow the advice of Tunisian security authorities and your tour operator.”

Many cruise lines have cancelled calls to the country following the attack on passengers on shore excursions to the museum.
