Twitter accounts that support Islamic State released three photos of someone they said is the gunman who killed at least 27 people, including foreign tourists, in an attack on a Tunisian beachside hotel on Friday.

The photos show from behind a man walking down a street and brandishing an assault rifle. The Twitter accounts praised him, wishing him entry to paradise.

Reuters could not independently confirm the authenticity of the photographs. The gunman who carried out the attack was disguised as a tourist and hid his weapon in an umbrella.
