At least nine people have been wounded after a strong explosion rattled the Tunisian capital on Monday, according to the interior ministry.

Witnesses and a policeman at the scene said a woman had blown herself up close to police officers. Several ambulances and security personnel were at the scene.

Ministry spokesman Sofiene Zaag told AFP that all but one of the casualties were police.

Ambulances arrived swiftly at the blast site, which was cordoned off by security forces.

Since the 2011 uprising that toppled dictator Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali, militant attacks in Tunisia have killed dozens of members of the security forces and foreign tourists.

In June 2015, 38 people were killed in a shooting rampage at the coastal resort of Sousse which targeted tourists, while an attack the same year on the National Bardo Museum in Tunis left 22 people dead.

The terror attacks decimated Tunisia’s crucial tourism sector, which made up seven percent of gross domestic product.

Tunisia has been under a state of emergency since November 2015, when an Islamic State group-claimed suicide bombing in Tunis killed 12 presidential guards.

The state of emergency was extended earlier this month until 6 November, amid a tense political climate ahead of legislative and presidential elections planned for next year.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
