Tunisia has faced a suspected terrorist attack on Friday, June 26, 2015 as two gunmen invaded two seaside hotels, opening fire on tourists and killing about 19, while 13 were injured.

An unconfirmed source stated one of the gunmen was killed alongside the 19 dead and 13 injured.

According to RIA Novosti citing the Interior Ministry, the Imperial Marhaba, a five-star had seven casualties from the attacks.

“It happened about half an hour ago – i heard a bang and i thought it was thunder but it was a clear sky so it obviously wasn’t,” said a witness to Sky News.

Another source told The Daily Mail that, “I heard sirens going off about 20 minutes ago and everyone came running back from the private hotel beach which is about 400 metres from the hotel.

“Everyone is a bit clueless about what is happening.

“We were told to go back to our rooms because there were reports of a bomb.”

The Imperial Marhaba is in the tourist terrain of Port El Kantaoui which is about 10km off the city of Sousse in central Tunisia
