    Tunisia's government has described a suicide attack that took place in the capital two days ago as "an isolated act".

    The female attacker was not on any of their watchlists.

    But some are now beginning to question if Tunisia's stagnant economy and soaring unemployment are to blame for radicalisation.

    Al Jazeera's David Chater reports from Tunis.
