Tunisian troops seize arms, papers with Islamic State symbol near Libyan border

TUNIS- Tunisian troops seized arms and documents bearing the symbol of Islamic State from two cars near the Libyan border, as authorities tighten security following two major attacks this year, officials said on Thursday.
"Troops seized 10 Kalashnikovs, rocket-propelled grenades, explosives, Libyan telephones cards and documents" in Wednesday's incident, an official in Tunisia's Interior Ministry told Reuters.
In March, Islamist gunmen killed 21 tourists in an attack at the Bardo Museum in Tunis, and 38 foreigners were killed in an assault on a Sousse beach hotel in June. Islamic state claimed responsibility for both attacks.
