A suicide bomber blew himself up in the Tunisian tourist resort of Sousse on Wednesday, the first such assault in more than a decade in a country now battling Islamist militants boosted by chaos in neighbouring Libya. first bomber had tried to enter the Riadh Palms Hotel with a suitcase.
Turned away, he ran onto the beach and blew himself up, a security source said. No one else was hurt. The bombing is bad news for the vital tourism industry in Tunisia, which attracted 5.8 million mostly European visitors to its Mediterranean beaches and desert tours in 2012. Tourism is still recovering from the 2011 uprising that toppled the North African country's autocratic leader Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali. Tunisia's stock market dropped 0.95 percent after the bombing. To go on holiday someone would be afraid now. They want to create fear and they are doing a good job about it.
