Tunisia Rallies for Peace After Terror Attack in Capital Leaves 19 Dead

Scores of people took to the streets of Tunis on Wednesday evening, hours after a terror attack at the city's national museum rattled Tunisia's capital and left 19 people dead, including 17 foreign tourists.
The large crowd shouted, "Tunisia is free. Terrorism out," and sang the country's national anthem in a spontaneous show of peaceful solidarity.
A shooting at the Bardo National Museum in Tunis around midday, local time, left 19 people dead, according to Prime Minister Habib Essid, who addressed the country following the attack. He said Polish, Italian, German and Spanish tourists were among the victims.
Gunmen entered the building, trapping several people inside, before police surrounded and stormed the museum. They then ended the standoff, killing two of the attackers. Security forces are looking for two or three others believed to have been involved.
Some are speculating that Islamic State (ISIS) militants might be behind the attack in Tunis, although no group has officially taken responsibility.
