Unidentified combatants launched attacks in Tunisia’s capital on Wednesday, killing at least seven foreign nationals and one Tunisian, and taking an unknown number of people hostage.
The shootings and kidnappings reportedly took place at the National Bardo Museum in Tunis.
An Interior Ministry spokesperson told NBC that two people carried out the shootings.
Local media, however, said there were three attackers. The Guardian reports:
The state of the combatants and hostages is not immediately known.
