The death toll from Tuesday’s suicide bombing attack in Tunisia has risen to 13, with at least another 24 people injured, Tunisian Minister of Health Said al-Aidi said. 

The victims, all police officers, were killed when a bomb exploded near a police car belonging to the presidency in capital Tunis.

The Turkish Foreign Ministry condemned the attack and sent condolences to the families of the victims and the Tunisian people.

Egypt’s Al-Azhar, the highest seat of learning in the Sunni Muslim world, condemned the attack in a statement and demanded an international strategy to confront terrorism.

Kuwaiti Emir Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah sent his condolences to Tunisian President Mohamed Beji Caid Essebsi and condemned the “criminal act.”

Meanwhile, Tunisia’s Ennahdha Movement called for accelerating the establishment of a national conference to combat terrorism that should “set a comprehensive strategy that gathers all Tunisians and their political powers.”
