A gunman who is suspected of being involved in the terror attack on foreign tourists at a Tunisian museum is believed to have been killed in an armed raid.

Prime Minister Habib Essid has told state news agency TAP that Khaled Chaieb, also known as Abou Sakhr Lokman, was killed overnight in an operation in the Gafsa region near the Algerian border.

Chaieb is believed to be a prominent militant in al-Qaida’s North African arm and is described as one of Tunisia’s ‘most dangerous terrorists.’
