At least 15 Britons are confirmed dead in the horrible terrorist attack carried out yesterday.

Horrible event, which IS have claimed they conducted. RIP to all the victims.

The government have said this is the worst attack on British citizens since the 2007 London attacks.

It is also dreadful news for the Tunisian economy which is heavily dependent on tourism. Numbers were already down following the attack on the Bardo Museum in Tunis earlier this year. This latest attack will reduce numbers still further. Tunisia has been the one major success of the "Arab Spring". That must now be in serious jeopardy.

That would have been the plan of the extremists of course, putting more people out of work, down on their luck and ripe for coercion whilst at the same time hurting a government they want to see down.

Really makes me sad, for the victims of course it's horrific but also what it's doing to a relatively successful country in the Islamic sphere by undoing all the hard work that made it this 'Arab Spring' success.

The seeming co-ordination of the attacks yesterday is quite scary, with the other ones in France and Kuwait, IS really needs to be stopped.

It's horrible news and it's really hit me too due to how close it was to where I stayed a few years ago. When I went on holiday to Tunisia around 5 years ago, I stayed in a hotel in Port el Kantaoui and I believe it was right next door to the hotels where these attacks happened.

And the remaining 20-something dead people are not worth mentioning?

Just found out that one of my sister's friend's mum is among the dead. Utterly tragic. RIP to all the victims.
