Tunisian soldier opens fire on fellow troops at military base

A Tunisian soldier opened fire on colleagues at a military base in the capital Tunis on Monday, killing an officer and two others and wounding 15 more before being shot dead himself, Tunisian authorities said.

It was not immediately clear what had triggered the shooting at the Bouchoucha base in Tunis, but it alarmed a capital city still on edge after an attack in March by Islamist gunmen on the Bardo national museum.
