TUNIS: A Tunisian border guard was killed on Sunday in a shootout with jihadists on the border with Algeria, state television and the president of a union of border guards said. Ridha Ennasri, the union president, confirmed to AFP that a border guard was killed in “a terrorist attack” and said that another was wounded. The killing comes days after a Tunisian policeman was shot dead by two assailants on a motorbike in the coastal resort of Sousse. Authorities have been unable to say whether jihadists carried out that killing and an investigation is ongoing.
