By Murad al-Dalaji

TUNIS (AA) – A French tourist was killed and a soldier injured in a knife attack in northern Tunisia, said the country’s interior ministry on Monday.

A ministry statement said the attacker was known to law enforcement authorities and had a criminal record.

It said a manhunt has been launched for the attacker, but gave no details about possible motives for the attack.

The statement said the attack took place in the town of Jarzouna near the port city of Bizerte in the North African country.

Monday’s attack came one day after Tunisians elected former law professor Kais Saied president in an election runoff.
