"Following the two separate terrorist attacks that occurred on June 27 in the heart of Tunis, several suspects have been arrested by the security units," said Fourati in a statement.

"The security situation in the country is stable now," assured the minister, calling for "more vigilance."

Since the beginning of July, the Tunisian authorities have imposed exceptional security measures in and outside the airport immediately after a Tunisian suicide bomber blew himself up a few weeks ago.
