Holidaymakers and locals have continued to pay their respects at the beach where the attack happened
Britain is “united in shock and grief”, the prime minister has said, as it emerged the British death toll in the Tunisian attack will rise above 30.
A total of 38 people were killed by a gunman with links to Islamic State extremists on a beach near Sousse.
Writing in the Daily Telegraph, David Cameron urged a fightback, vowing the UK would show “unshakeable resolve” in dealing with extremism.
He stressed the need to reject those who condone the “extremist narrative”.
Tributes are continuing to be paid to the British victims, who include three generations of the same family, university graduates and a husband who died trying to shield his wife.
A number of British tourists remain missing, with their relatives continuing to face an agonising wait for news.
None of the dead have been officially identified but the names of some were confirmed by friends and family:
Carly Lovett, 24, a beauty blogger and photographer from Gainsborough in Lincolnshire, who had been on holiday with her fiance
Sue Davey and her partner Scott Chalkley, both in their 40s and from Tamworth, whose deaths were confirmed by their respective sons who had launched social media campaigns to find them
Adrian Evans, his father, 78-year-old Patrick Evans and nephew Joel Richards, 19, from Wednesbury, West Midlands. Joel’s brother Owen, 16, survived the attack
