One of Tunisia Gunmen Was Known to Intelligence: PM

One of the two gunmen who shot dead 17 foreign tourists and two Tunisians at Tunis' Bardo Museum was known to the country's intelligence, the country's premier said Thursday, as leaders met to huddle on responding to the terror attack. The two gunmen opened fire as tourists stepped off a bus outside the popular museum in the capital, killing 19 and also injuring 44. One of the men had been flagged before by intelligence, although not for "anything special," and he was not linked to any particular group, Prime Minister Habib Essid told Tunisian radio. Tunisia is working with other countries to learn more about the gunmen, whom authorities have identified as Yassine Laabidi and Hatem Khachnaoui.
