ISIS take over Tunisian Star Wars locations


Tourists are being warned to stay away from popular Star Wars sites in Tunisia as the terrorist organisation known as Islamic State, commonly referred to as ISIS, has begun using the area as a waystation for recruitment.

Tataouine, which lent it's name to the home planet of Anakin and Luke Skywalker, is roughly 60 miles from the Libyan border and several reports have emerged detailing Jihadist activity in the area. ISIS have recently been in the news for the destruction of historically significant archaeological sites, such as the site of the ancient Assyrian city of Nimrud, so it is unknown what the ultimate fate of the Tunisian Star Wars sets of locations like Mos Espa may be.
