Tunisia: EU pledges aid to Tunisia following deadly attack

 Brussels expressed sympathy Friday in the wake of a bloody attack on Tunisia's national museum in which gunmen massacred 21 people. Lawmakers added that the EU would extend economic aid to Tunis:

"The European Union and its member states will intensify cooperation with Tunisia to counter this common terrorist threat, to strengthen Tunisia's promising democracy and to assist its economic and social development," the 28-nation bloc said in a statement.

The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the two gunmen to the Bardo National Museum in Tunis where they opened fire on a tour bus and killed more than a dozen European visitors.

"This is an attack on Europe and Europe has to respond," EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said in Brussels as European national leaders are meeting for a two-day summit.
