Tunisia increasing security following massacre
SOUSSE, Tunisia - Tunisia's prime minister has announced a string of new security measures in the wake of its worst terrorist attack ever.
The measures include closing renegade mosques and calling up army reservists.
The prime minister (Habib Essid) told reporters in Tunis that reservists will be deployed in tourist sites around the country and inside hotels.
He also said that political parties and associations espousing radical ideas with suspicious funding would be closed down and around 80 mosques known for extremist preaching would be shut.
The government has been criticized for its lackluster anti-terror measures, especially since 22 people were killed by gunmen at the national museum in March.
Meanwhile, tourists are fleeing the coastal city of Sousse, where a young man dressed in shorts pulled an assault rifle out of his beach umbrella Friday and killed 38 people, mostly tourists. He was shot and killed by security forces.
Britain's foreign minister says at least 15 Britons were among those killed.
