Hotel security guards are among 33 people facing charges that they failed to help tourists during 2015’s deadly attack on a beach in Sousse, Tunisian officials say.
They are accused of not assisting a person in danger, leading to their death, spokesman Sofian Sliti said.
It comes after a UK judge said the Tunisian police response had been “at best shambolic and at worst cowardly”.
The attack by student Seifeddine Rezgui killed 38 people, most of them British.
He opened fire on holidaymakers in an attack claimed by so-called Islamic State.
