At least 27 people have been killed after a hotel in the Tunisian coastal city of Sousse came under attack by unidentified gunmen. 

An interior ministry official said that tourists were among those who had been killed in Friday's attack.

One attacker had been killed by police and a search operation was ongoing, with reports that another attacker was involved.

Ongoing exchanges of gunfire had earlier been reported between the attackers and security forces.

The attack was on the Imperial Marhaba hotel. Other reports indicated that two hotels may have been attacked.
There were no other details immediately available.

Tunisia has been on high alert since March when gunmen attacked the Bardo museum in Tunis, killing a group of foreign tourists in one of the worst attacks in a decade in the North African country.
