Injured: Kirsty Murray and fiancee Radley Ruszkiewicz

A British woman shot in both legs during the Tunisia gun attack insists more than one man carried out the killing.

Kirsty Murray was shot by a man carrying a handgun who she believes was not Seifeddine Rezgui.

Rezgui is the gunman pictured on the rampage with an automatic rifle who was eventually killed by police.

Ms Murray was at the swimming pool with her fiance Radley Ruszkiewicz at the Hotel Marhaba in Sousse when Rezgui opened fire on holidaymakers, the Daily Mail reports.

The 25-year-old, from Braintree in Essex, says she was not wounded by bullets from Rezgui’s AK-47 but by a small calibre weapon.

Her father Neil told the Mail that she and her fiance ran from the pool into the hotel and into a corridor where a grenade exploded.

He was badly injured but she was able to carry on fleeing but ended up at a dead-end where she was shot in the legs at close range.

He said: “He was shooting women in the legs and men in the head – and he stepped back over her a couple of times but she played dead.

“She believes there were at least two gunmen because she was shot at close range with a handgun.

“Both her and her fiancé have said there was more than one gunman.”

At least 38 people were killed in the gun attack.

At least 30 of the dead are believed to be British – although only 12 have been named so far.
