New evidence suggests two gunmen in Tunisia terror attack

As UK Home Secretary Teresa May arrived in Tunis Monday to lead the investigation into last Friday’s terror attack, witnesses reported that the gunman, identified as Tunisian student Seifeddine Rezgui, landed on the five-star Hotel Rui Imperial Marhaba hotel beach by jet ski or speedboat. After firing indiscriminately with a Kalashnikov on the mostly British tourists, he carried on shooting inside the hotel lobby and out on the street.
Witnesses also reported shots from the neighboring Hotel Bellevue, suggesting a second gunman took part in the attack. Some 30 British citizens were among the 38 people shot dead. Dozens more are in hospital. The Tunisian government suspects that the gunmen were trained for their operation by Al Qaeda in Libya. As many as 3,000 young Tunisians have joined the Islamic State.
