"We thought we had eliminated terrorism but we hope that terrorism will not bring us down, especially with the bad political climate in Tunisia now", President Beji Caid Essebsi said.

"We thought we had eradicated terrorism.(but it) is still in the heart of capital", he said. Several ambulances and security personnel were at the scene. Shops lowered their shutters and cafes emptied as panic gripped passersby.

According to state news agency TAP, who cited the Tunisian Interior Ministry, the bomber had no known militant background.

The ministry said she died instantly. It said the attacker was wearing a home-made bomb belt with a small quantity of explosives.
