ISIS Blamed For Tunisia Attacks That Left 19 People Dead

At least 19 people, including several children, have been killed Wednesday by three gunmen in a terror attack on the famous Bardo museum in Tunisia.

Two of the gunmen were killed by police fire. A massive manhunt is underway to capture three more suspects who are being thought to have worked as accomplices, Tunisian prime minister Habib Essid said.

European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini blamed Islamic State militants for Wednesday’s attack.

“The EU is determined to mobilize all the tools it has to fully support Tunisia in the fight against terrorism,” Mogherini said.

No one has come forward to take responsibility for the attack.

“All Tunisians should be united after this attack which was aimed at destroying the Tunisian economy,” Prime Minister Essid said in a national address.

Suspicions that ISIS militants may have been behind this deadly attack stem from the fact that more than 3,000 Tunisians have gone to fight with ISIS and Islamic State fighters have been become particularly active in the neighboring nation of Libya.

In January, Obama called Tunisia a “great example” of “civil society.”
