    Suicide bombers wound 5 police in Tunisian capital

    There is no claim of responsibility yet. I’m pretty sure the Japanese Kamikaze’s are all gone. So who is left that does suicide bombing?

    TUNIS, Tunisia (AP) — Two suicide bombers blew themselves up near the U.S. Embassy in the Tunisian capital, Tunis, Friday, wounding five police officers, the Interior Ministry said.


    A ministry statement said the attackers both died. A civilian was slightly injured. One of the five injured police officers was in a critical condition, according to a lawmaker.

    Security units were placed on a state of maximum alert, the ministry said. Hundreds of police swarmed around the scene and sharpshooters were visible on the roofs of nearby buildings.


    Lawmaker Yosri Dali, head of the armed forces and security commission, confirmed eyewitness reports that the attackers were on a motorcycle. He said in an interview with Radio Mosaique that they blew themselves up when a police patrol stopped them to ask where they were going.


    There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.


    The lawmaker said that one of the injured police officers was in critical condition. The ministry statement said the patrolling officers suffered varying degrees of injuries.



    The embassy, which was stormed by a crowd of hundreds in 2012, put an advisory on its web site telling people to “avoid the area.” Phones at the embassy went unanswered.


    A flag in the U.S. Embassy compound, which is surrounded by walls, could be seen fluttering above the attack scene.

    Not an uncommon reality in the Middle East. These type of things are almost not even newsworthy, they happen so often.

    If Democrats had their way, we'd see this in every American city.
