Relatives of the 38 British tourists killed in the June 2015 terrorist massacre in Sousse Tunisia have claimed that Tui, the parent company of travel agent Thompson instructed its sales staff to play down the risk of terrorist attacks in the country, despite warnings from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO).

A coroner has obtained an internal Tui document that was published two days after the Bardo museum massacre in March 2015, when 22 European tourists were shot, which instructed Tui staff to tell customers “Tunisia remains a popular destination for us and customers are enjoying their holidays as normal”.

Three months after Tui’s reassuring words 38 more tourists were shot in Tunisia.
