Foreign Office minister comments on anniversary of Bardo Museum attacks

Minister for North Africa, Tobias Ellwood, pays tribute to victims of terrorism

Foreign Office Minister Tobias Ellwood said:

Today marks a year since the brutal attack on the Bardo Museum in Tunis. Twenty-two innocent people lost their lives that day, and over fifty were injured. The majority of victims were tourists, including Sally Adey, a British National. Our immediate thoughts are with the Adey family as they remember Sally at this difficult time.

Recent events have shown the threat from terrorism is real and present, and the UK will continue to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Tunisia in the fight against Daesh.
