Tunisia president declares state of emergency

The president of Tunisia, Beji Caid Essebsi, has declared a state of emergency following last week's deadly attack at the Sousse tourist resort, which killed 38 people.

On Friday the prime minister of Tunisia admitted that police had been slow in responding to the attack by an Islamist gunman.

The state of emergency gives security forces more powers and limits the right of public assembly.
