Tunisia’s state of emergency will remain in place until June.

The government announced this week that the emergency measures will remain for a further three months, to June 22. The decision was made by President Beji Caid Essebsi.

It is the third time the state of emergency has been extended in recent months.

The state of emergency has been in place since November when a suicide bomber struck in the country's capital that killed 12 members of the president's security detail.
