Chilling and terrifying, up-close footage of the deadly terror attack at a Tunisian hotel emerged online hours after the shooting, which left at least 39 people dead and has now been claimed by ISIS.
Most of the shaky cellphone footage was filmed within earshot of the gunfire, which erupted on the beach of a Sousse hotel popular with tourists.
The gunfire is raucous and rampant in parts of the three-minute video showing a series of scenes from the hotel grounds. Other parts of the video show terrified tourists fleeing from the beach, and some beachgoers sprawled on the sand, either shot or in hiding, after the massacre ended.
The video was posted on the website for the Tunisian radio station Mosaique FM. It’s unclear who filmed the footage, which is edited together from several vantage points.
The gunman, who disguised himself as a beachgoer and hid his AK-47 rifle in an umbrella, was shot dead by police.
His attack is the deadliest in the country’s history, and most of his victims were British tourists. Besides the fatalities, 36 people were wounded. By Saturday, tourists were lining up at Tunisia’s Hammamet airport to cut their vacations short.
