A Tunisian court held its first public hearing Friday in the trial of 26 people in connection with a 2015 militant beach massacre that killed dozens of foreign tourists.It was the second of two deadly attacks on foreigners claimed by Daesh (ISIS) that year, which devastated Tunisia's once-lucrative tourism sector.Security was unusually tight at the Tunis courthouse for Friday's hearing, which lasted around an hour and a half and was attended by British diplomatic officials.British judge Nicholas Loraine-Smith, who held an inquest into the deaths of the Britons among the holidaymakers, said in February that the Tunisian police response had been "at best shambolic, at worst cowardly".
