Tunisia is reeling from a terrorist attack on Friday in which a gunman appeared to target European visitors, prompting fears that a key pillar of the country's struggling economy – tourism – could be under threat.
At least 38 people are believed to have been killed in the holiday resort town of Sousse on Friday when a gunman opened fire on a beach and nearby hotels. The majority of those killed were tourists, enjoying the beach resort popular with European holidaymakers.
Tunisian Prime Minister Habib Essid announced a clampdown on security after the latest massacre, but whether that is enough to inspire faith among tourists – whose numbers in Tunisia are already falling -- is another matter.
Karim Touhami, a sales manager at the Hotel Marhaba in Sousse, located near where the shootings took place, told CNBC on Monday that he was worried about business, and the industry as a whole.
"Of course, we are worried about our industry and our business, but the government is taking decisions to protect the beach and all of the hotels. There are police on the beach and there will be security at the hotels," he said.
