Gunmen apparently crossing from Libya attacked a Tunisian border garrison on Monday, officials said, raising worries about Islamic State fighters and other militants gaining greater footholds in North Africa. More than 40 people were killed in the clashes.
The assault followed skirmishes in the region last week between Tunisian forces and well-armed militiamen also believed to be based in Libya, where the Islamic State has expanded its presence amid political chaos that has divided the country into two rival zones.
