An explosion rocked a district of the Tunisian capital home to the US embassy Friday, the North African country’s interior ministry said without giving the cause, while state media spoke of an attack.
The blast caused panic among pedestrians near the embassy in the Tunisian capital’s Berges du Lac district, images shared online showed.
Tunisian Radio Mosaique said five people were injured after a militant blew himself up near the embassy, though there was no official confirmation.
