European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini blamed Islamic State on Wednesday for an attack on tourists in Tunisia that killed 19 people, including 17 foreign tourists.

"With the attack that has struck Tunis today, the Daesh terrorist organisation is once again targeting the countries and peoples of the Mediterranean region," she said in a statement, using the Arabic acronym for Islamic State.

"This strengthens our determination to cooperate more closely with our partners to confront the terrorist threat," she said. "The EU is determined to mobilise all the tools it has to fully support Tunisia in the fight against terrorism and reforming the security sector."
