Tunisia attack: Bardo museum reopening delayed to Sunday

The reopening of Tunisia’s Bardo museum following the attack that killed at least 22 people has been delayed until Sunday.

The museum had been due to reopen on Tuesday morning but there will now only be a symbolic ceremony.

Security concerns appear to have halted the reopening, according to the BBC’s Rana Jawad.

The reopening, less than a week after the attacks, was intended to show the gunmen “haven’t achieved their goal”.

Only the media will be allowed inside the museum on Tuesday. A small rally was held in front of the museum.

There are fears the attack – claimed by Islamic State (IS) – will hit Tunisia’s vital tourism industry.
