Seifeddine Rezgui

23 year old engineering student Seifeddine Rezgui, a 'normal' youth from a poor but respectable background walked onto a beach in Tunisia and opened fire on holidaymakers sunning themselves on the beach.

Eyewitnesses said Rezgui picked out his victims carefully, apparently sparing all Tunisians he came across, including a group of hotel workers who formed a human shield to stop him entering a building next to the one he eventually targeted.

He was laughing and relaxed during the killing spree, which went on for about half an hour, according to survivors.

An avid user of social media, his status updates prior to the New Year mostly focus on hip hop and Real Madrid but he suddenly began posting recurring messages of jihad around the time he began attending mosques controlled by radical preachers in the months leading up to Friday's attack in Sousse. It stated: 'If the love of jihad is a crime, everyone can testify that I am a criminal'

He certainly is - but at least now he's a dead criminal.
