Three passengers on the Costa ship Fascinosa (pictured) have been confirmed as being among the victims of the terrorist attack in Tunis.

A further 8 passengers were injured and two remain unaccounted for.

“We strongly condemn the attack on democratic Tunisia. Our deepest sympathy and our condolences go to the victims and their families. We share their sorrow,” the company said.

“Our team in Tunis is currently taking care of the companions of the victims and the 8 guests who are being treated in hospitals.

“A further Costa management team is supporting our crew and our guests on board. In the meantime, Costa Fascinosa has left Tunisia and is currently at sea.

“We are in constant contact with the Italian Government and the security authorities of Tunisia as well as of other countries.”
