The North African state, which has seen an exodus of tourists, has admitted that its security services were unprepared for the seaside attack in Port El Kantaoui and that police were too slow to respond. "The president has declared a state of emergency in Tunisia" and was to address the nation, Essebsi's office said, adding that it would be implemented for a renewable 30-day period.
