Tunisia

The BBC’s Rana Jawad has been asking people on the streets of Tunis, Tunisia’s capital, how they feel about the news:

“This affects us as Tunisians and it affects the people of the Arab world in General. We don’t want to be associated with it, and be labelled as terrorists. The person who carried out this attack is the sole one responsible for it. Tunisians are peaceful. This is a catastrophe, and terrorists make up a tiny fraction of the population and do not represent Tunisians.
Fawzi Ouslati]
It’s abnormal what these people [attackers] are doing, it’s abnormal. They should be dealt with using powerful policies and with an iron fist. An iron fist is needed to clean up this dirt in the world.”
Mohamed
What happened in Nice yesterday hurts us a lot, especially given that we have friends and family there, and in the name of humanity, it’s so sad.”
