AT least eight tourists have been killed in Tunisia after militants attacked a museum in a parliament building.
Local media reports state that visitors from Britain, Spain, France and Italy are among those killed in the capital city of Tunis.
More tourists are believed to have been held hostage at the Bardo museum.
But authorities have now claimed that troops managed to free all the hostages.
Around 100 people were in the museum when the terrorist attack began.
AFP news agency reported that at least two men armed with Kalashnikov assault rifles were involved.
Tunisia’s security forces surrounded the museum before they stormed the building, with two militants and one policeman dying in the process.
