In Tunisia's Tourist Heartland, Anxious Wait After Attack

The European visitors strolling Tunisia's Hammamet resort are an encouraging sign for a government determined to minimize the fallout of last week's shooting of 20 tourists in the nearby capital. But there is anxiety about the future in the five-star hotels, trinket shops and restaurants in the town, where horse-drawn carts trot calmly in the Mediterranean sun. Japanese, Spanish, Italian and Colombian tourists were among the victims when at least two gunmen opened fire on their buses as they arrived at the Tunis Bardo Museum, which houses some of the Roman artifacts that are one of Tunisia's major draws.
