Tunisia Building Border Fence, U.S. Starts Online Messaging Campaign

Tunisia is building a border fence on its border with Libya to keep out ISIS.

The barrier will cover 168 kilometers (105 miles) — in this area one-third of the border — and will include fencing, a sand wall, trenches and surveillance posts.

The U.S. has partnered with the UAE to launch a new online messaging campaign called the Sawab Center to counter ISIS' message.

The Sawab Center will use direct online engagement to counter terrorist propaganda rapidly and effectively, including messages used to recruit foreign fighters, fundraise for illicit activities, and intimidate and terrify local populations. The Sawab Center will increase the intensity of online debate by presenting moderate and tolerant voices from across the region and amplifying inclusive and constructive narratives.

The UK is asking British citizens to leave Tunisia as another attack is feared.
