Tunisian police question seven over beach massacre

Eyewitnesses have claimed the Tunisian beach massacre may have been carried out by more than one attacker as authorities continue to quiz seven suspected associates of the gunman.

Tunisian interior minister Mohamed Gharsalli announced the arrests of several nationals allegedly linked to attacker Seifeddine Rezgui. They were arrested in at least three different cities and taken for questioning in the capital Tunis.

Authorities say Rezqui acted alone during the rampage in the resort of Sousse but had accomplices who supported him before, providing him with weapons and logistical support.

However, British tourists staying in the north African country claim they saw a second man carrying a gun and roaming the resort.

Carly was and always will be our beautiful shining light; she was funny, clever, artistic and radiated love and happiness around her. Carly recently got engaged to Liam, her childhood sweetheart of 10 years. Both were excited and looking forward to a bright future together filled with love and happiness. This has now been cruelly taken away. To move forward through this we will try to do what we believe Carly would want and that is to love, cherish and support each other. The support received from family, friends and people we don’t know has been overwhelming and has been a great comfort to us all. Carly, may you soar with the angels and we pray with all our hearts that this evil, and such disregard for human life, will end so no other family will feel the pain that we do today and always will."
