Corbyn confirmed his visit in the daily Morning Star, saying: “I was in Tunisia at a Palestinian conference. I laid a wreath to all those that had died in the air attack that took place on Tunis, on the headquarters of the Palestinian organizations there. And I was accompanied by very many other people who were at a conference searching for peace.”
However, the Daily Mail claims that the monument commemorating those victims is in a different part of the cemetery from where Corbyn was photographed standing. The images, posted on the Facebook page of the Palestinian embassy in Tunisia, show him standing under a red canopy with a corrugated steel roof. According to the Mail, that structure runs beside the graves of Black September members and a plaque honoring their founder, Salah Khalaf, his key aide Fakhri al-Omari, and Hayel Abdel-Hamid, PLO chief of security.
