Tunisian police killed a militant and wounded two others on Tuesday, the Interior Ministry said, after clashes in a southern city close to the border with Libya, where authorities say Tunisian militants are being trained and armed.
Tunisia's government has increased security operations after a bomber blew himself up in the tourist resort of Sousse last month, the first such assault in more than a decade.
"The security forces killed one terrorist, wounded two others and arrested the rest of the group after a confrontation with militants hiding in a house in (the city of) Kebeli," said Mohamed Ali Aroui, a spokesman for the interior ministry.
He later said eight people had been arrested and five cars seized, including one that he said was rigged up with a bomb.
Two members of the security forces were wounded during the clashes which took place at dawn on Tuesday.
