Tunis museum attack: Survivor recalls being shot

Tunisia's president has urged Tunisians to unite to fight terrorism, two days after an attack on the Bardo museum in the capital Tunis killed 25 people, mostly foreign tourists.

"We won't win if we don't stand together," Beji Caid Essebsi said in a national address marking 59 years of Tunisia's independence from France.

One survivor told the BBC that he saw two people wearing black running before he and his wife were shot.

Islamic State has said it was behind the attack on the museum, which is next to the country's parliament.

Nine people have since been arrested.

Fergal Keane reports.
