Tunisia blast: Explosion hits bus carrying presidential guards

An explosion has hit a bus carrying presidential guards in Tunisia's capital, Tunis, killing at least 13 people, officials have said.

It happened at a bus stop where the presidential guard picks up and drops off its staff, near the former headquarters of the party of deposed President Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali.

Roads in the city were already clogged because of heavy rain and flooding when the blast happened.

The BBC's Rana Jawad reports from Tunis.
