June 28, 2015

"...His uncle Ali Bin Muhammad Rezgui said 'everything was normal' the day prior to the massacre.

The distraught 70-year-old said: ‘He was with me on Thursday. We sat in the garden and he was perfectly normal.

‘He left here at 12pm and we had no idea what he was planning. We talked about his life and studies. That was the last time I saw him.

'He was a sweet boy when he was younger. He was a breakdancer and loved football. He should have had a long, happy life.'..."

"...At first glance, the life of Seifeddine Rezgui appeared to be like that of any other young Tunisian man.

An avid football fan, his family have described the 23-year-old as a young man who enjoyed all the trappings of Western society.

The authorities have admitted that the transformation of an apparently normal young man caused amazement in Tunisia.
