A state of emergency imposed in Tunisia after a jihadist gunman killed 38 foreign tourists in June is to be extended for two months, the president's office said on Friday.  

"After consultations with the prime minister and the speaker, the president has decided to extend the state of emergency in force nationwide for two months from August 3," a statement said.

On July 4 -- six days after the gun attack at the Mediterranean resort of Port El Kantaoui -- President Beji Caid Essebsi ordered a state of emergency for an initial 30 days.
