The bodies of more of the British victims are expected back in the UK on Friday
A minute’s silence will be held across the UK at midday to remember the 38 people – including 30 Britons – killed in the Tunisia beach attack a week ago.
Flags will be flown at half-mast over Whitehall and Buckingham Palace, while play at Wimbledon will be delayed.
The Queen and Prime Minister David Cameron will join the silence.
The first inquests into the deaths of the Britons will begin later, with the bodies of more of the dead expected to arrive back at RAF Brize Norton.
The foreign secretary has said all 30 British people killed have been identified. Philip Hammond said he was confident the figure was the final British death toll from the beach shootings in Sousse last Friday.
Tributes have been left at the scene of the attack, where a ceremony will take place
The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh will join staff at the University of Strathclyde marking the silence, while Mr Cameron will be in his Witney constituency in Oxfordshire.
A number of mosques are excepted to participate in the silence, and many will also remember the victims during Friday prayers. …read more
