Four dead including a Frenchman in a shooting at the Djerba synagogue

A mourning celebration. Two worshipers taking part in a Jewish pilgrimage and two gendarmes were killed Tuesday evening by an agent of the Tunisian maritime guard who opened fire in front of the Ghriba synagogue on the island of Djerba, announced the Ministry of the Interior.

A policeman and two synagogue “visitors” were killed by the assailant’s gunfire and four others were injured, the ministry said in a statement, which said one of the dead was a 42-year-old Frenchman.

The gendarme of the maritime guard first killed a colleague and seized his ammunition. Then he went to the outskirts of the synagogue where he opened fire on the security forces ensuring the security of the place before being shot.
