A square in the memory of 12 presidential guards killed in a suicide attack on November 24, 2015 in Tunis was inaugurated Thursday.
The inauguration of this square at the barracks of the Presidential Guards in Gammarth took place on the first anniversary of the death of these 12 officers.
Families of the martyrs, members of the government and national figures also attended the inauguration ceremony which was chaired by the President of the Republic Beji Caid Essebsi.
The President unveiled a memorial, showing three special agents with their weapons, inside the barracks of the presidential security service in Gammarth, a suburb of Tunis.
“The terrorism we are confronting is not part of Tunisia’s culture,” he said as wreaths were laid in front of sculptures of the faces of the 12 victims.
Twelve gunshots were fired in the air and the president lit two bowls with a flame which had been brought to the barracks from the scene of the November 24, 2015 bomb attack.
A state of emergency has been in force across Tunisia since the bus bombing.
