TUNIS: Tunisian authorities said Monday they had arrested seven people over a knife attack the previous day that killed a National Guard officer and wounded another.
The attackers struck early Sunday morning in the tourist district of Sousse, ramming the officers with a vehicle and then assailing them with knives.
Three assailants were later shot dead in a firefight, the National Guard said, labelling the attack a “terrorist” act.
The wounded officer was “in a stable condition,” interior ministry spokesman Khaled Hayouni said.
