Tunisia police arrest 12 suspects over Sousse attack

Tunisian authorities have arrested 12 suspects in connection to the shooting of 38 people at a hotel in Sousse. Two others are still being hunted by police, the Independent reported. They are believed to have trained in Libya alongside the 23-year-old Sousse gunman Seiffedine Rezgui and the attackers who targeted the Bardo Museum in March, according to officials. “This is a group who were trained in Libya, and who had the same objective,” said Lazhar Akremi, minister for parliamentary relations.
