(NBC NEWS) Gunmen killed 19 people and wounded two dozen others in an attack on a museum near Tunisia's parliament, the country's prime minister said Wednesday.
Prime Minister Habib Essid said 17 of the dead were foreigners, adding that two attackers had been killed in an operation to end the attack.
It was not immediately clear who was behind the attack on the National Bardo Museum, which lies next to Tunisia's national parliament building. Footage from Tunisia's state-run broadcaster ERTT showed what appeared to be security services ushering dozens of civilians out of a street and into a building.
