Tunis Attack: Shooters Kill Eight at Tunisia’s National Bardo Museum
Eight people have been killed in an attack on a museum near Tunisia’s parliament, the Interior Ministry told NBC News. The ministry said there were two shooters involved but would not comment on whether the situation was ongoing or if any hostages had been taken.

It was not immediately clear who was behind the attack on the National Bardo Museum, which lies next to Tunisia’s national parliament building. Footage from Tunisia’s state-run broadcaster ERTT showed what appeared to be security services ushering dozens of civilians out of a street and into a building.

The public affairs section of the U.S. Embassy in Tunis told NBC News it had no additional details and was not prepared to comment on the incident in any way. A message later posted on the embassy website warned of an “ongoing security situation” around the Bardo museum and urged U.S. citizens to avoid the vicinity.
