A Tunisian soldier died on Monday of his wounds from a landmine explosion on Mount Ouergha in the west of the country near the Algerian border, the defence ministry said.

Another soldier was killed in a mine blast last summer in a mountainous region of northwest Tunisia where the army has been tracking down extremists.

Since its 2011 revolution, Tunisia has experienced an increase in extremist attacks that have cost the lives of dozens of members of the security forces and also 59 foreign tourists.
