Tunisia to close 80 mosques after ISIS massacre

Tunisia will shut down about 80 mosques accused of inciting violence, Prime Minister Habib Essid said after the Friday beach attack by ISIS that left 39 people dead – Tunisians, Britons, Germans, Belgians, French and at least one Irish citizen. He accused these extremist mosques of “spreading venom.” The gunman, a student previously unknown to the authorities, was shot dead by police. Kuwait tightened security on its oil installations the day after an ISIS suicide bomber killed 27 Shiite worshippers and injured 220 outside a mosque.
