A Tunisian policeman and two gunmen were killed during a police raid on a house in Tunis where weapons, explosives and suicide bomb belts were found, the Interior Ministry said on Tuesday.

A gunbattle erupted late on Monday when police surrounded a house in Raoued, a northern suburb of the capital, in an attempt to arrest a group of suspected men hiding there.

"They had suicide bomb belts and explosive material and they were well-armed," Interior Ministry spokesman Mohamed Ali Aroui said, without naming the group to which the men belonged.
