Tunisia to declare state of emergency after Tunis bus bombing - ministry

TUNIS (Reuters) - Tunisia’s government will declare a state of emergency giving security forces more powers after a bomb attack on a bus full of presidential guards in Tunis killed at least 12 people, a spokesman for the Interior Ministry said on Tuesday.

The North African country had imposed a state of emergency after a gunman attacked a hotel, killing foreign tourists, in the beach resort of Sousse in June. It was lifted last month.
