Tunisia attack: Britain must prepare for high death toll, PM warns

LONDON: The public must be prepared for a high British death toll following the attack on a Tunisian beach resort, Prime Minister David Cameron says.


At least five Britons have been confirmed dead by the Foreign Office.

Islamic State extremists say they carried out the attack. Tunisia’s prime minister Habib Essid says the majority of the 38 people killed were British.

The prime minister said his “thoughts and prayers are with the loved ones of those killed or injured”.
