A man has blown himself up in front of a hotel in a Mediterranean resort town, Sousse, south of Tunis, Police sources and the official Tunisian news agency say.

The TAP news agency on Wednesday said the man, wearing a belt of explosives, was killed. It was not clear if other people were hurt or killed in the explosion in the town of Sousse, about 150km south of the capital, Tunis.

Sousse is a frequent destination for tourists.

Tunisian police also said Tuesday that they captured a man who tried to blow himself up at the tomb of Habib Bourguiba, a former president, in the town of Monastir.

Tunisia has been battling unrest since the overthrow of Zine El Abidine Ben Ali’s regime in 2011, and has seen the rise of self-declared jihadist movements.

In October alone, nine members of the security forces have been killed in clashes with what the government calls “terrorist” groups.
