Unidentified combatants launched attacks in Tunisia's capital on Wednesday, killing at least seven foreign nationals and one Tunisian, and taking an unknown number of people hostage.

The shootings and kidnappings reportedly took place at the National Bardo Museum in Tunis.

An Interior Ministry spokesperson told NBC that two people carried out the shootings.

Another "je suis Charlie" moment? Or Nemtsov "grief march"?

What has the Tunisian gov't done recently that the US/NATO doesn't like? Sell oil in Euros? Allow Libyan refugees to live a better life? Refused an IMF "loan"?

AAHHH, there it is. From the BBC: "Concerns about security in Tunisia have increased in recent months as neighbouring Libya has become increasingly unstable. A large number of Tunisians have also left to fight in Syria and Iraq, triggering worries that returning militants could carry out attacks at home. "

So therefore the BBC finds it unsurprising that there are: "helicopters flying... tanks rolling... Parliament evacuated".

Waddles like a coup, quacks like a coup. How crafty will the US/NATO be in covering its tracks this time, the corporate media insisting that martial law is necessary for "national security".
