Tunisian officials have assured the public that the sets used for locations on the desert planet of Tatooine are safe from Isis fighters. The original report from CNN stating that the sets had been taken over by terrorists entering Libya appear to have been inaccurate. Tourism officials from the nearby city of Tozeur insisted that the information "does not reflect the reality", while Colonel Mokhtar Hammami of the National Guard said that “without a shadow of a doubt that all is normal", and added that they had in fact seen an increase of tourists who were being kept safe by 1,500 troops patrolling the area. Tataouine, had exaggeratedly been dubbed a "terrorist way-station" after three men heading to Libya to join the terrorists were arrested there earlier in the year. Despite this, the actual sets are far from the town in an area that has so far not seen any trouble.
