Tunisia’s state of emergency will remain in place until February after it was extended by two months.

The Tunisian government made the decision following talks between the country’s prime minister and parliament.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office has since updated its advice and states that “further attacks remain highly likely, including against foreigners”.

A statement from the FCO said: “Security forces are on a high state of alert in Tunis and other locations.

“You should be especially vigilant and avoid crowded places over the holiday period, including around Mouled (24 December), Christmas and New Year.”

Earlier this month, Tui boss Peter Long described the massacre of 30 Thomson customers in Tunisia as the “most tragic in his career”.
