Britain was in shock Saturday as it braced for news of further casualties from the bloody attack on a Tunisian beach resort, which has already caused the worst loss of British life in a terror incident since the 2005 London bombings.As the grim process of identifying the bodies continued, travel firms began repatriating thousands of British tourists from beach resorts around the attack site near Sousse, about 140 kilometers (87 miles) south of Tunis.There are currently about 20,000 British tourists on package holidays in Tunisia, according to ABTA, the country's largest travel association.The attack is the deadliest terror incident for Britain since 52 people were killed by four suicide bombers in an attack on the London transport system on July 7, 2005 .The Tunisia shooting followed a March attack claimed by ISIS on Tunis's Bardo National Museum that killed 21 foreign tourists and a policeman, and comes as a further blow to the country's tourism industry.
