Tunis - Tunisia's Interior Ministry say 10kg of military explosives were used in an attack on a bus carrying presidential guards that left 13 people dead.

It said in a statement on Wednesday that either a backpack or an explosive belt containing the explosives was used.

It says the 13th body is believed to be the "terrorist who caused the explosion," but says the body can't be identified by fingerprints because no fingers were found. It said a DNA analysis of the body is underway.

No one has claimed responsibility for Tuesday's attack in central Tunis.
