Tunis, Tunisia, 18 March 2015. Twenty people were killed, mostly tourists, and many more wounded when gunmen attacked the popular Bardo museum in Tunis. They took others hostage, some of whom were evacuated as members of the security services deployed around the museum's buildings prior to entering them. Security forces allegedly traded fire with the militants inside before killing two of the unknown number of gunmen. Others are still thought to be at large, and one officer is reported to have died.
