REUTERS IS CONFIDENT THE EVENTS PORTRAYED ARE GENUINE. An act of defiance in Tunisia, as people return to cafes in Tunis. A state of emergency has been declared a day after a suicide bomber killed at least a dozen people in an attack on a presidential guard bus. (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) TUNIS RESIDENT, EMNA, SAYS: "They declared war on nothing. Why? Why? They think that they are Muslims and that we are not? Who said that? May Islam be better than their Islam. These people hate themselves. If they felt that they belong to Tunisia, they wouldn't be killing its children, their brothers. The victims have children, a family, a mother. Why?" Some say living well is the best revenge. (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) TUNIS RESIDENT, CHAYMA, SAYS: "This is life, we should resist and keep going with our lives. If we stay in our homes and say that we are scared and we won't go out, how can we fight terrorism? If we did that, terrorism would go further in our country." Islamic State is claiming responsibility for the attack releasing a picture of the man who they say carried out the attack and a statement that says: "We will not rest until God's law will reign in Tunis.
