& # 39; Tunisian security forces have also been improved and better prepared to deal with terrorist threats than they were at the time of the 2015 attacks.
& # 39; But further attacks are likely to continue, including in places visited by foreigners such as tourist resorts.
& # 39; Attacks can be carried out by persons unknown to the authorities, whose actions can be inspired by terrorist groups. & # 39;
The British government does not recommend travel to certain parts of Tunisia, in particular parts of the country that borders Libya and Algeria.
The US Department of Foreign Affairs offers similar advice and says that terrorists can attack with little or no warning.
Officials may have limited capacity to assist tourists in some parts of Tunisia, they warn.
Visitors are also advised not to spend the night outside major cities and tourist locations.
