Two jailed over Tunisia bombing
Workers repaint the bomb-damaged synagogue
Many of the dead at the historic site were German tourists
Two men have been jailed for five years by a Spanish court for collaborating with a terrorist group in an attack in Tunisia that killed 21 people.

Pakistani Ahmed Rukhsar and Spaniard Enrique Cerda Ibanez were found guilty of sending money to a man believed to have financed the bombing.

Victims of the suicide attack at a synagogue on the island of Djerba included 14 German tourists.

The attack was claimed by a senior figure in al-Qaeda months later.

The attackers drove a tanker truck filled with cooking gas to the synagogue before detonating the truck, court documents said.
