ISIS Claims Killing of 38 in Attack on Tunisian Beach
The Islamist group named the attacker as Abu Yahya al-Qirawani and said he managed to infiltrate the Hotel Riu Imperial Marhaba in the coastal city of Sousse.
Though some witnesses reported seeing more than one gunman, and the Tunisian Interior Ministry had initially said there had been three, but a ministry spokesman later said they are aware of only one and that he has been killed.
The spokesman, Mohammed Ali Aroui, said the gunman was a student who was going to receive his master’s degree in engineering in the nearby town of Kairouan before carrying out the dastardly act.
ISIS through their twitter accounts have however been posting the picture of the man and saying he made them proud."
