BREAKING: Islamist Attack on Tunisian Museum, Over 21 Dead Including Westerners

This morning an attack was carried out by a group of Islamists dressed in military-style fatigues at the Bardo Museum, a popular museum in Tunisia. 21 people have been killed, including 17 foreign tourists, some of whom were Westerners.

Once again we see people of “the religion of peace” murdering innocent people who were just going about their day.

Tunisia’s prime minister says 21 people are dead after an attack on a major museum, including 17 foreign tourists — and that two or three of the attackers remain at large.

Habib Essid told national television that the foreigners included tourists from Poland, Italy, Germany and Spain.

He said that two of the attackers were killed in a gunfight with police on Wednesday, and that security forces are hunting for two or three others believed to have been involved.

A Tunisian citizen and a policeman also died in the attack, Essid said.

Foreign tourists ran for shelter, covered by security forces aiming rifles into the air, live television footage showed.

Security forces were surrounding at least two militants in the Bardo museum, a venue in central Tunis on the parliament grounds that is a popular site for visiting foreigners, the interior ministry spokesman said.

Yeah. The religion of peace strikes again.
