More than 60 people have died in separate acts of terrorism in three countries – at a factory in France, a mosque in Kuwait, and a beach in Tunisia.

Sad and shocking news.

Not much to say here other than this is getting old.

Are these really isolated incidents?

All we can say really is that we have sympathy with everyone affected and have praise for the bravery of those who faced up to the terrorists - such as the tourists and locals in Tunisia who did their best to protect them by forming a human shield.
