Tunis [Tunisia], Oct 30 (ANI): At least nine people were injured in a suicide bombing incident in the Tunisian capital of Tunis on Monday.
Tunisia's interior ministry confirmed in a statement that a 30-year-old woman set off the bomb close to a police patrol, resulting in eight security officials and one civilian sustaining injuries, CNN reported.
The woman, who was previously unknown to the authorities, was the only one to be killed in the incident. The bombing took place near the Habib Bourguiba Avenue, at the heart of the Tunisian capital around 1:55 PM (local time).
A state of emergency has been in effect in Tunisia since a succession of terror attacks rocked the North-African nation in 2015. The emergency was extended earlier in October by the President Beji Caid Essebsi. (ANI)
