France denounces an attack in which a Tunisian police officer shot dead two worshipers and two members of the security services at a Tunisian synagogue.

The French government “condemns this heinous act in the strongest terms,” foreign ministry spokeswoman Anne-Claire Legendre says of the shooting on the island of Djerba, whose victims included a French national and an Israeli.
