The assassin is believed to be Seifeddine Yacoubi, 23, an aviation student from the Tunisian city of Kairouan.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack, the deadliest involving foreigners in Tunisia since a 2002 suicide bombing on the island of Djerba.

The attack comes just hours after a man was decapitated and dozens more injured at a gas product factory in France by terrorists carrying Islamist banners.
