Tunisia names gunmen who attacked tourists at Bardo museum

The Tunisian authorities have named the two gunmen involved in the attack on tourists at a Tunis museum that left 23 people dead.

It is thought that Yassine Laabidi and Hatem Khachnaoui may have recently been in neighbouring Libya, which has a big problem with extremist militants.
