Tunis, 30 June 2015:
Libya has been linked to the Sousse beach resort massacre and the March slaughter at . . .[restrict]the Bardo Museum in Tunis which in all, slayed 61 people. The Tunisian Interior Ministry today claimed that all the terrorists involved had trained near Sabratha.
A senior Tunisian security official Rafik Chelli told Associated Press that Seifeddibe Rezgui, the gunman who carried out Friday’s Sousse attack, in which 39 people, mostly tourists died, had trained at a terrorist camp at Al-Ajaylat, on the outskirts of Sabratha.
In its initial response to the Sousse attack, Tunisian sources had claimed there was no evidence that Rezgui had ever left the country. The suggestion was that he had been radicalised at a local mosque and during his geography or aviation studies (reports vary) at Kairouan university.
However,the new claim that he and the two Bardo attackers had been trained and picked up their weapons in Libya chimes with the reality that a significant number the foreign of IS and Ansar Al-Sharia members is Tunisian.
Sabratha was the scene last January of the beach murder of a British oil worker and a female companion from New Zealand. The attack was at first blamed on local Islamists outraged at what they took to be a close relationship between a couple who were not married. Subsequent information blamed the crime on Ansar.
