Tourist console each other after the attack

Yesterday alone 3 deadly attacks were carried out across continents of the world and eye witness in the Tunisian resort attacks claims the attacker joked and laughed with the tourist before the bullets from his gun fell many.

As 23-year-old Seifeddine Yacoubi hopped off an inflatable boat about midday at the popular holiday resort of El Kantaoui, north of Sousse on Friday, he quickly blended into the hundreds of people enjoying a sunny day.  

The aviation student carried a beach parasol and joked and laughed with tourists as he moved among the mainly European holidaymakers, seeking out anyone from Britain or France.
Police officers surround a man suspected to be involved in an attack on a beachside hotel in Sousse, Tunisia,.

But, in an instant, the scene changed. Yacoubi produced an AK 47 from under his umbrella and the slaughter began.
The horrific scene that unfolded was one of three terrorist attacks across three continents on the same day. In France, a lone killer decapitated a man at a liquid gas factory and flew a jihadist flag. In Kuwait, Islamic State claimed responsibility for a suicide bombing at a mosque that killed 27 and injured hundreds.
World leaders united in outrage and promised further action to co-ordinate a response to the attacks.

Yacoubi, who Islamic State called Abu Yahya al-Qayrawani, starting his shooting rampage on the beach, before making his way towards the hotels behind.
The tourists were defenceless and Yacoubi cut them down mercilessly. Islamic State claimed responsibility for the Tunisian attack, according to SITE Intelligence Group, a US-based organisation.

Eventually, police shot the attacker "Yacoubi" . His body was photographed in the street, with the Kalashnikov lying next to him.
