In a travel warning out Friday, the State Department warns that Islamic State group jihadists have targeted Tunisian security officials, tourists and civilians in the regions.

The warning urges US citizens to “exercise caution” in Tunisia “when frequenting public venues,” especially tourist sites, and to avoid political gatherings, “rallies, large crowds and demonstrations, as even demonstrations that are meant to be peaceful can be unpredictable.”

Tunisia, the birthplace of the Arab Spring, has suffered from jihadist violence since the 2011 revolution that ousted longtime dictator Zine El Abidine Ben Ali.
