TUNIS (Reuters) – Tunisia’s interim president extended the country’s state of emergency for another month, his office said in a statement on Friday.

Two suicide bombers blew themselves up in separate attacks on police in Tunis in June but security in Tunisia has improved since authorities first imposed a state of emergency in November 2015 after dozens died in militant attacks that year.
