Tunisia: US Embassy in Tunis Closed on 1 July
The US Department of State has announced that the US Embassy in Tunis will be closed on Monday, 1 July due to security concerns. Only emergency services will be available. The decision comes days after two suicide bombing occurred in the city on 27 June. Further closures are possible in the coming days. Those who require services from or contact with the Embassy can find details on their website.
Those operating or residing in Tunisia are reminded to be aware of the threat of terrorism. Exercise a high degree of caution near government and military buildings and personnel. The recent suicide bombing attacks on 27 June are indicative of the fact that Islamic extremists operate in the country. Take particular care when visiting densely populated tourist sites. Report any suspicious activity to the authorities and remain vigilant.
