Tunisia Museum Attack: New Video Shows Moment Shooting Started

Riveting newly released video reveals the moment a group of tourists in Tunisia realized the museum they were in has come under militant attack.

Riveting new video has emerged capturing the moment a group of tourists in Tunisia realized the museum they were in had come under militant attack.

Visitors start and look around when the first loud bang interrupts a guided tour of the Bardo museum in Tunisia’s capital Tunis, according to the video by Maria Rita Gelotti and released by The Associated Press on Tuesday.

“Did they shoot? Did they shoot?” a woman’s voice can be heard asking in Italian.

The group flees at the second sound of automatic gunfire, and museum visitors can be seen running along halls and down stairs. Gelotti and her husband Marcello Salvatori escaped the March 18 attack by two Tunisian men that killed 20 tourists, including Japanese, Polish, Italian and Spanish nationals. Two gunmen were shot dead at the scene and Tunisian authorities say they are looking for a third suspect.
