The Foreign Office has updated its travel advice for Tunisia to include details of a stabbing in Tunis yesterday.

A member of the National Guard was attacked with a knife in the Goulette area of the city.

The latest attack follows the fatal stabbing of a policemen outside the Brazilian embassy in Tunis last month.

Tunisia has been under a nationwide state of emergency since a suicide attack on a police bus in November 2015, which followed the killing of 38 foreign tourists, including 30 TUI guests, in Sousse in July 2015 and the murder of 21 tourists, including a British national, at the Bardo Museum in Tunis in June 2015.

The Foreign Office has been warning for some time that despite an increase in security in tourist resorts, further attacks ‘remain likely, including in places visited by foreigners such as tourist resorts’.
