Suicide attacks targeting police rock Tunis
A suicide bomber targeting a police patrol has struck a busy commercial street in central Tunis, injuring at least five people including two police officers.
Tunisia's interior ministry says the attacker detonated explosives near the French embassy, a very busy and symbolic part of town, shortly before 11 a.m. Thursday.
There were reports of a second terrorist attack against security agency barracks in Tunis.
Tunisia has been struck by terror attacks in the past. But no major incidents were reported since 2015.
In October, a female suicide bomber struck the city centre, killing only herself.
Details are still sketchy about the circumstances of the incidents and the casualties they caused.
