Third Tunisia museum suspect 'on the run'

Tunisian President Beji Caid Essebsi (L) prays after laying a wreath at the entrance of the National Bardo Museum in Tunis on March 22, 2015 in tribute to the victims of the attack claimed by the Islamic State groupTunisia is hunting a third suspect in the massacre of tourists at its national museum, President Beji Caid Essebsi said, after admitting security failures at the Bardo. Wednesday’s attack on the National Bardo Museum in Tunis killed 20 foreign tourists and a policeman, and was the first assault claimed by the Islamic State group in the North African country. It came as Tunisia — the birthplace of the Arab Spring that held its first free elections last year — struggles with rising Islamist extremism. After rampaging through the museum for several hours, the two gunmen were killed in an assault by security forces.
