TUNIS (Reuters) - Tunisian authorities have identified the suicide bomber from Tuesday's bus attack as a Tunisian national, and have made 30 more arrests since the blast that killed 12 presidential guards in the capital, the interior ministry said on Thursday. Islamic State has claimed the attack, the third major militant assault in Tunisia this year following the attacks on a Sousse beach resort and the Bardo museum in the capital, both targeting foreign visitors.

By Tyrone Siu HONG KONG (Reuters) - Canada's China-born Miss World contestant was stopped in Hong Kong on Thursday and denied permission to board a flight to the beauty pageant finals in China, a move she said was punishment for speaking out against human rights abuses in the country. Anastasia Lin, a 25-year-old Toronto actress who was crowned Miss World Canada in May, was unable to obtain a visa in advance of her arrival for the contest finals this week in Sanya, on the southern Chinese resort island of Hainan.
