TUNIS - Most of the 39 people killed by a gunman in the Tunisian beach hotel attack where British citizens, Tunisia's Prime Minister Habib Essid said.

Islamic State militants have claimed responsibility for Friday's assault on the Imperial Marhaba resort hotel in the town of Sousse.

"The dead are British, German and Belgian, but most of them are British, without giving any figures," Essid told reporters on Friday night.

A Tunisian gunman disguised as a tourist opened fire with a rifle he had hidden in an umbrella, killing people as they lounged at the beach and at the pool. He was shot dead by police.
