Two armed men attacked two tourist hotels in the eastern city of Sousse, killing at least 38 Tunisians and foreign nationals and wounding 36 other people, according to the Ministry of Interior. The victims appear to be mostly British.  

While one of the attackers was killed by the authorities, the second is currently being actively sought by the security forces. This comes only three days after the Islamic State urged its militants to escalate attacks during the month of Ramadan.
