A security source at the scene said the body of one gunman armed with a Kalashnikov assault rifle lay where police had shot him dead. It was unclear whether there were other assailants.

Gary Pine, a British tourist close to the scene of the attack, told Sky News he was on the beach and heard what “we thought was firecrackers going off” 100 yards away, followed by an explosion from the next hotel complex along.

“There was a mass exodus off the beach,” Pine said, adding that his son told him that he had seen someone get shot on the beach. Pine said guests at his hotel were first told to lock themselves in their rooms, and later to gather in the lobby.

Sousse, 150kms (93 miles) from Tunis, is one of Tunisia’s most popular beach resorts, drawing visitors from Europe and neighbouring north African countries. There have been no details on the nationalities of those killed but during the holy month of Ramadan, those on the beach tend to be tourists.

Tunisia has been on high alert since March when Islamist militant gunmen attacked the Bardo museum in Tunis, killing a group of foreign tourists in one of the worst attacks in a decade in the north African country.
