- We were at the beach when it happened. We heard shots from machine guns. People began to scream and run away from the beach. We ran back at the hotel. My sister talked to someone who saw that people were shot on the sunbeds, but we do not know if it's true. People cry and are in panic, says an English tourist who was in the area to Sky News.
