U.S. condemns attack at museum in Tunis, backs government: Kerry

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States condemns Wednesday’s attack at Tunisia’s national museum, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said in a statement.

“The United States stands with the Tunisian people at this difficult time and continues to support the Tunisian government’s efforts to advance a secure, prosperous, and democratic Tunisia,” he said.

Gunmen stormed the museum earlier on Wednesday, killing two Tunisians and 17 foreign tourists.
