New video has emerged of Tunisia beach killer Selfeddine Rezgui on the day of the shooting that left 38 people, including three Irish and 30 British, dead.

The clips show Rezgui making his way along the waterfront on Friday, and show hotel staff and locals following him.

Investigators in Tunisia say Rezgui had support from other militants.

Authorities have increased security around tourist resorts in the country after the attack, which was claimed by Islamic State.

Meanwhile, people in Athlone say they have been “stunned into silence” by the deaths of a couple from the town in the massacre.

Larry and Martina Hayes, who were both in their 50s, were on holiday in Kantawi and are understood to have been waiting for a bus to the airport when they were caught up in the shootings. Nurse Lorna Carty from Co Meath was also killed.

The Department of Foreign Affairs is warning any citizens planning to travel to Tunisia to exercise extreme caution.

Parish Priest of St Peters and Paul in Athlone Canon Liam Devine said the town had rallied in support of the Hayes family, and Larry and Martin’s daughter Sinead, aged 30.

“I was down at the house yesterday and there was a constant stream of people offering their support and condolences,” he said.

“People were stunned into silence but at the same time, their support meant a lot to the family.”
