A woman, 30, blew herself up in the centre of the Tunisian capital Tunis on Monday, police on the scene told Euronews’ Paris correspondent Anelise Borges.

At least 80 people sustained injuries of varying severities and were taken to hospital, including police and civilians, the Tunisian Interior Ministry said in a statement. There were no fatalities.

The perpetrator, who was not known to authorities for extremism, was killed on the spot, the ministry added.

A witness reported an explosion on the central Habib Bourguiba Avenue where police were cordoning off the area near the capital’s landmark Municipal Theatre.

“I was in front of the theatre and heard a huge explosion,” witness Mohamed Ekbal bin Rajib told Reuters.
