Foreign tourist visits to Tunisia fall by 21.5 percent in first half

TUNIS The number of foreign tourists visiting Tunisia fell sharply again in the first half of this year, official data showed on Monday, a day after the North African nation marked the first anniversary of an attack by an Islamist gunman who killed 38.

The gunman killed his victims, mostly British holidaymakers, on a beach in the resort of Sousse on June 26, 2015, in an attack that dealt a heavy blow to Tunisia's tourism industry, which accounts for eight percent of national output.
