‘They opened up on anything that moved’: Tunisian guide describe terrifying moment ‘Islamists’ gunned down Westerners

A Tunisian tourist guide has told how he ‘stared death in the face’ as terrorists opened fire on his clients in an attack which left 22 dead, including 17 foreigners.

Local guide Walid was inside the Bardo National Museum museum when the gunmen shot 17 tourists dead as they exited cruise ship buses parked outside.

The gunmen, disguised as soldiers, then entered the museum and took 30 more tourists hostage before police swarmed the building and killed them in a shoot-out which also claimed an officer’s life.
