A Tunisian special force officer and a policeman patrol the beach as tourists take part in a ceremony on July 3, 2015, in memory of those killed the previous week by a jihadist gunman in the popular resort of Port el KantaouiTunisian President Beji Caid Essebsi on Saturday declared a state of emergency following last week's beach massacre claimed by the Islamic State group in which 38 foreign tourists were killed. The North African state, which has seen an exodus of tourists, has admitted that its security services were unprepared for the seaside attack in Port El Kantaoui and that police were too slow to respond. "The president has declared a state of emergency in Tunisia" and was to address the nation, Essebsi's office said, adding that it would be implemented for a renewable 30-day period.

Dimitra Danikoglou, 48, gestures as she talks next to her son Nikolas, 23, at their apartment in Athens, Saturday, July 4, 2015. Meet the Danikoglous, a typically intense, articulate Greek family divided over how best to cope with Greece’s careening financial crisis, which may lead to a break with the eurozone and the European Union if voters Sunday say “no” to a proposed bailout plan that would impose still more years of austerity on an already crushed Greek economy. They are united in their belief that only as a strong family can they weather the coming storm. And they share a sense that Greece, so rich with history and culture, has fallen tragically short of its potential. (AP Photo/Spyros Tsakiris)ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Dimitris is voting "yes" because he fears Greece would be in danger if it leaves the European Union. His daughter Alexandra is voting "no" because she is tired of richer European nations bossing Greece around.
