Tunisian security forces open a gate to allow an ambulance carrying wounded victims from a gunmen attack at Tunis' famed Bardo Museum on March 18, 2015 to pass.

The attack appeared to be the worst on foreigners in Tunisia since an Al-Qaeda suicide bombing on a synagogue killed 14 Germans, two French and five Tunisians on the island of Djerba in 2002.
