The United States Embassy in Tunisia was on high alert Sunday morning. 

Officials there warned people to avoid a major shopping mall in the capital city after a reported threat of a militant attack. 

Tunisia has been in a state of emergency after a series of attacks targeting tourists, one of which occurred at a resort in June. 

Another attack happened at a museum in March. 

ISIS claimed responsibility for both attacks.
