Separately, Qatar's Ministry of Foreign Affairs expressed its condemnation and denunciation of the twin explosions that targeted a police car and the headquarters of the counter-terrorism unit in the Tunisian capital.
In a statement , the ministry expressed Qatar's firm rejection of violence and terrorism regardless of their motives or reasons. The statement stressed Qatar's solidarity with the Tunisian government in all the measures it will take to maintain security and stability.
The statement also expressed the condolences of Qatar to the families of the victims, the people, government of Tunisia, and wished the injured a speedy recovery.
AFP reports: Yesterday's blasts — one on a central avenue and another against a security base — killed a police officer and wounded at least eight people including several civilians, the interior ministry said.
An AFP correspondent saw body parts strewn in the road around a police car after the first attack, which took place on Habib Bourguiba, a central avenue near the old city.
The interior ministry said one policeman died from his wounds after that blast, while another policeman and three civilians were wounded.
"It was a suicide attack," interior ministry spokesman Sofiene Zaag said.
Half an hour later, the second attack targeted a base of the national guard, judicial police and the anti-terror branch in the capital.
The Islamic State group claimed responsibility, saying the "executors of the two attacks on Tunisian security elements" were its "fighters", according to US-based monitor SITE Intelligence Group.
Just hours after news of the attacks broke, the presidency announced that Essebsi "was taken seriously ill and transferred to the military hospital in Tunis".
