Major Tunis museum attacked, 17 visitors killed

Gunman attacked a major museum, the Bardo Museum, in Tunis, next to Libya, killing 19 including 17 foreign visitors. Parliament was evacuated. Tunisia is one of the few places evolving towards peaceful democracy. This is  horrible! Those poor people who only wanted to look at antiquities and maybe enjoy a cool spot. 22 tourists and 2 guards were hurt in the attack. This is clearly an attack on a nation wishing for democracy and an attack on their important tourism industry. It is also an attack on cultural heritage.
