British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond has said that the death toll of Britains caught up in a bloody terror attack on a Tunisian beach resort in Sousse on 26 June has reached 29. And the UK authorities believe that the remaining victim not yet identified is also British.

Speaking on 1 July after chairing a meeting of the government's COBRA emergency committee, Hammond said: "I can confirm that the number of Britons killed in the Tunisia terrorist attack who have been positively identified has now reached 29."

Earlier, David Cameron had told Prime Minister's Questions that the British death toll had risen from 22 to 27, but he was expecting it to reach 30.

"One victim now remains who we believe is British but police require further time to confirm the identity," Hammond added.

"All of our injured are home and all bar one of the 30 who we believe are British have now been positively identified.

"The first RAF flight to repatriate the bodies of those killed in the attack returned eight of the victims to their loved ones.

"The remaining bodies will be flown back to Britain over the coming days."
