Tunisia PM: Muslims Killed 19 people, including 17 foreign tourists, in Bardo museum attack

Tunisia PM: 19 people, including 17 foreign tourists, killed in museum attack

Still conflicting reports, some say 2 Muslim terrorists killed and the hostage taking is over, however others say at least 3 more Muslim terrorists are on the loose.


Information is scattered, and the language barrier doesn’t help. My suspicion is this might be Muslims however. I know, I know, I’m goin out on a limb here…

It is possible that “foreigners”, read infidels were singled out by the Muslims for execution as happened in Kenya. That is the likely scenario.

Reports of two Brits and two italians killed, everything is still pretty sketchy however.

Some BBC Background: Concerns about security in Tunisia have increased as neighbouring Libya has become increasingly unstable.

A large number of Tunisians have also left to fight in Syria and Iraq, triggering worries that returning militants could carry out attacks at home.

From Reuters… At least eight tourists were killed and others were taken hostage by militants who attacked Tunisia’s parliament compound, which includes a museum, a spokesman for the interior ministry said on Wednesday. Well that clears up some confusion about the location.

The Telegraph has live updates: At least three gunmen attack Tunisia’s parliament building in Tunis, with eight tourists killed and reports of up to 30 hostages still held

“In front of parliament”

    I’m sure it has nothing to do with islam. Its just Harper spreading islamophobia again.

    • chayisun

      It’s the Mossad.

      • Harper and the Mossad.

        • chayisun

          OK….Harper, the Mossad and Buddhists…Your turn 🙂

        • The Goat

          Isn’t it Bush’s fault though?

    • luna

      Probably had everything to do with Islam, but MSM will do their best to deny that reality. This is the real Isamophobia, the fear of acknowledging a link between core Islamic doctrine, and crimes against humanity.

  • It’s just the first Islamic atrocity of the day.

    So what’s new?

    • You’re right, Muslim Headchoppings etc are now so normalized I expect parliament will make it a hate crime to report on them.

    • luna

      They killed foreigners & it’s still ongoing, that’s why the story has legs. Had they killed locals, no one would be paying attention.

    My Wife and I visited Tunisia some time ago on a vacation. Spent two wonderful weeks there staying in a seaside area called Hammamet. Met some wonderful people there, muslims all, and they were so friendly and nice folks. Made some friends and we kept in touch through email. Visited Tunis and it was a vibrant fun city. Lots to see and do. Had one bad encounter with a carpet salesman and some idiot in a motorcycle tried to run me over while I was out on a run……Seriously….but, other than that, great time.

    I have not been able to contact anyone through email for some time. And now this. I fear for the people I met. Torn as I am for my loathing for islam the people I met were hard working folks who just wanted to go on with their lives and support their families….How things have changed…….

    • Tunisia has been relatively sane but wherever Islam has taken root madness and mayhem inevitably follow.

    • John

      Half of Tunisia wants to be French ( the friends you met) and the other half want to be Saudi ( the carept salesman and the motorcyclist). None of the MENA region countries are safe anymore.

    CBC News update says 11 hostages now killed, but the security forces have gone in and freed some hostages:

    At least the rabid Islamo-nazis have been killed.

    • I am seeing tweets indicating as many as 18 are dead.

  • Latest count is 17 tourists killed. People who travel to a Muslim country must know their lives at at risk. Many Europeans go to these countries, and every year some return dead, if at all.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Has the BBC blamed Israel yet?

  • lolwut?

    Another quiet day with the religion of peace.

  • The world can decide today whether it wants further instability in that region or whether it wants to wear the big boy pants.
