[music] >> and this is the al jazeera news hour coming to you live from london. i'm david foster. this is some of what we'll be studying in detail for the next 60 minutes. running for their lives as gunmen storm a museum in tunisia, killing 24 people. face off in frankfurt at the europe central bank open new headquarters.
2:01 pm
the u.s. said it will reevaluate its approach to the peace process. and the man who made first spacewalk remembers the giant leap for russians space exploration. and i'm lee wellings with the support. the quarterfinal line up will be complete. barcelona are already ahead and expecting to through. >> tunisia's security forces say they're looking for more gunmen who may have been involved in an attack on a tunisian museum. the attack was at the bordeaux museum a major tourist creation
2:02 pm
justattraction just a few meters away from the country's parliament. there was a meeting going on in the parliament at the time. it was becoming pretty clear that gunmen had taken hostages. they moved in, the security forces ending the siege. let's see how all of this unfolded. >> reporter: do you kneetunisian security forces call for reinforcement to the bardo museum. there were hundreds of visitors inside when gunmen open fired. some people managed to get out running for their lives. authorities say the gunmen hunted people down, spraying bullets. tunisia's parliament, which is next to the museum was in session at the time.
2:03 pm
it was evacuated. very quickly the police go in, killing the two gunmen. but there are reports up to three others helping the attackers are on the run. >> our country is under threat. it is a very critical moment in our history. it is a defining moment in our future. we're envied by many for the outstanding outcomes in terms of the political transition in our success and march towards democracy. many are taking opportunities to undermine our homeland. we'll react without mercy to all those who attempt to undermine tunisia's security. >> it's military and police have come under attack. but no one expected this. >> this is the most important attack in mod person history.
2:04 pm
we saw attacks but not on civilian, and certainly not something involving them. >> that was not just an attack on tunisia's tourism and economy, it was the success story of the arab spring. now it's facing a new reality. this tiny country has been given a taste of the violence and deaths that has hit its neighbor libya and other parts of the arab world. al jazeera. >> we talked about the fact that there were many foreign visitors, many of whom had lost their lives. this was from a french tourist to the museum in tunisia. >> we were visiting the museum, and suddenly we heard big
2:05 pm
noises. at first we thought it was a statue falling but bit by bit we realized it was gunshots. there were four of us. we found a couple with children. we didn't know what to do. we hid on the top floor and after a while we heard that the gunshots had stopped. we went down and there was a guide in the mosaic room. we stayed there for an hour on the floor without moving until the police came. they told us, you run get out quickly. they took us to the military barracks. >> let's go live to tunis, can you tell us how security the capital feels particularly around the parliament building and the me sue yum. does it all appear to be under control?
2:06 pm
>> by the time they broke in the whole place was surrounded by hundreds of policemen, by the army and especially the museum is just next to the parliament, where you have all the elected deputies working at the time that the shots happened in the museum. >> in a sense, this is what we've been discussing, that this was an attack on the museum rather than a mistaken attack on museumon the parliament that ended up in the museum. >> this was an attack on the museum particularly the tourist who is were in the museum. unfortunately, at the time of the attack there were over 350 tourists and.
2:07 pm
>> they did not see this coming in tunisia. >> if tourist money was taken from tunisia, that would be a significant blow to the country. >> indeed, it would be dramatic. it is already dramatic. tourism represents 7% of gdp and thousands of people work directly in the tourism industry. so we've been already seeing the number of degrees in the past few years but this will certainly change the situation and it is a hard hit on the tourism industry.
2:08 pm
>> in the past hour they respond to the attacks saying it is difficult to deal with the conflict in libya the next-door country, to fight terrorism in africa. >> the responses that i've had today are all agreed on the objective of the economic fabric and cooperation between countries. that is the best way to fight terrorism. because an environment that facilitates terrorism by the absence of state in libya increases instability. we have a duty to work together to find an agreed solution, which has been negotiated to have one state one transition in central government in libya. >> okay, we have the european union foreign policy chief a new person in the post who said that
2:09 pm
she believes this was isil who behind this, daesh is what she called it. but in your opinion does the finger point directly at them, or is there any number of groups that would stand to gain in carrying out the attack. >> i think it's i see to say what group is behind the attacks. we can say that tunisia faces two types of threats. one is the domestic one and then the external one that is includes also obviously the islamic state and other terrorist groups present in the region northern mali, for example. until we know exactly where the terrorist is and what group they belong to, it's hard to say who actually did this. >> you heard that this was an
2:10 pm
attack directed at foreign visitors to tunisia. 3.5million british visitors alone visit tunisia. how damaging would it be for that country's economy? >> this is a real problem right now for tunisia. it's not so much that the security situation has deteriorated and in tunisia we've seen two terror attacks in the past few years. this is not new per se. but the fact that tourists were involved in this, and this is going to end a very negative significant both to foreign investors who were starting look at tunisia as a possible investment destination or a
2:11 pm
place to spend holiday time. now this is going to change because of the negative perception that will develop from this. >> it is regarded by many people as the only country where the arab spring revolution has succeeded. if i'm right what you have at the moment is a secular coalition with--it's two very disparate groups. will this likely push a wedge between them to make the country more fragile than it already it? >> i don't think so. the think the fact that we have islamists and secularists makes it so neither side can exploit. they will need to cooperate together and work out a solution to this president bush without blaming each other for the attacks. >> thank you very much, indeed. good to have you with us on the
2:12 pm
news hour. we'll tell what you with you know as we wrap up this segment in the news hour. tourists chased out of the bardo museum after gunmen, at least two, stormed the building, killing visitors and a number of other people as well, 24 fatalities in total including the gunmen as security forces decided to take matters into their own hands. no claim of responsibility as yet, but the european union foreign policy chief said it is down to daesh the term often used for isil state of iraq and the levant. the suggestion from our expert is that this was first of all aimed at disrupting the amount of foreign money that comes into the country. therethereby destabilizing the
2:13 pm
economy. it is unlikely to be shaken by these developments. >> right outword out of the white house that it is deeply concerned about the rhetoric coming out of israel, and it will be evaluating it's approach to the middle east process. prime minister benjamin netanyahu suggested that left-wing organizations are trying to get the israeli vote out in droves to sway the election against him. netanyahu's likud party appears to have earned 30 seats in parliament allowing him to build a coalition government with ease. we're talking about what the usa is saying in just a moment. first we go to west jerusalem. >> after a bruising campaign,
2:14 pm
israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu said prayers at judaism's holiest site and thanked supporters. >> i thank those who elected me and my friends against all odds in the face of powerful forces and i will do everything i can to care for the security and wonderful of all israelis. >> netanyahu's decisive victory came as a surprise to many, not least the opposition leader isaac herzog, after weeks of leading in the opinion polls conceded defeat. >> a few minutes ago i spoke with prime minister netanyahu and congratulated him on his achievement and wished him luck. but i wish to make clear to the israeli people, the challenges are the same challenges. the problems are the same problems. nothing has changed. >> her done's zionist union

2:16 pm
israeli-palestinian voters. netanyahu will have to find a way to heal israel's tensions with its closest allies, including the united states. although prime minister netanyahu's likud has won the seat, it's up to the president to decide which leader will form a coalition government. it's difficult to see how netanyahu will find any common ground with any faction that doesn't belong to the far right. al jazeera, west jerusalem. >> still to come on the news hour the satellite images which appear to show an attack on an iraqi village. what human rights groups say who is to blame. the fire in the sky. what is causing the aurora borealis and aurora australiaus

2:27 pm
i think to say about how the movement viewed today they see the building for their anger for the fact that they feel that countries really suffer. there was a slogan something along the lines that your house is built on bodies. they think it's built on the bodies of the austerity policies that they feel have been inflicted upon them. he has said that governments need to spend more money to boost the economy and get it growing again but this was not the sort of policy change that they would seek. as things stand right now protesters are going on their separate ways, as you can see. the police are gearing down, and it's very much a sense that the
