Tunisia: At least seven people have been killed in an attack on a tourist hotel in the Tunisian resort town of Sousse, according to the Interior Ministry.

At least one gunman has been shot dead, a security source told Reuters news agency.

Sousse is a popular tourist destination.

Tunisia has been on high alert since March when militants killed 22 people, mainly foreign tourists, in an attack on a museum in the capital Tunis.

The Interior Ministry told the BBC "a terrorist attack" was ongoing and there were casualties, but did not give any more details.
