7 soldiers Killed, 10 injured in Tunis barracks shooting

TUNISIA: A Tunisian soldier has been shot dead after he killed seven of his colleagues at a military barracks in Tunis, according to the defence ministry.
Ten others were wounded, one seriously, in the attack at a flag-raising ceremony at the Bouchoucha barracks.
The man had family and psychological issues and was “forbidden from carrying arms”, said ministry spokesman Belhassen Oueslati.
He described the incident as an “isolated act, not a terrorist act”. There would be an investigation to try to determine the killer’s motives, he added.
Mr Ouselati said the soldier attacked one man with a knife before taking the victim’s gun and “shooting at his comrades”.
