Tunisia: Beach gunman trained in Libya with museum attacker

One of Tunisia’s top security officials says the gunman who killed 38 tourists, mostly Britons, in a beach attack was trained in neighboring Libya at the same time as the attackers who targeted the Bardo museum in March. Rafik Chelli told The Associated Press Tuesday that Seifeddine Rezgui, a Master’s student in electrical engineering at Kairouan University, sneaked into Libya in January and trained near the western town of Sabratha. The two attackers that carried out the Bardo museum attack in Tunis in March that killed 22 people were there at the same time. The attack near the resort town of Sousse was the worst in Tunisia’s history and has devastated the country’s vital tourism sector.
