Aymen Morjen, 33, the headmaster of the security at Barracks National Security, in their fight against terrorism. Morjen was killed in the attack at the Bardo National Museum in Tunis, Tunisia.

According to the New York Times: Wednesday night, a Tunisian militant group calling itself the “Uqba ibn Nafi Battalion” posted a detailed message “You should hunt them everywhere, especially the French, the Americans, the British and the Israelis,” the message said. “Lure them in roads, lodges, dance clubs and bars. Slaughter them on the beaches, drown them in the sea, poison them on the roads by giving them something poisoned to eat, break their skull with a stone, or suffocate them with a pillow in the room.”
While it seems this was a surprise attack, conditions inside Tunisia for many months indicate the tension and fears among those who live there, when citizens refused to stop their car as ordered by police, because of a fear the stop was actually being performed by “terrorists”.
German newspaper www.thelocal.de published an article August 24, 2014 stating the following issues in Tunisia.
“Ahlem D., a German-Tunisian student, was travelling back from a wedding with four relatives on Saturday night when the car she was in was shot at near the city of Kasserine in central Tunisia. The 21-year-old was killed along with her 18-year-old cousin.
Tunisian police claimed that they had signalled for the car to stop as they approached a road block, but the vehicle continued to advance at a high speed.
Ashraf Hendiri, Ahlem’s cousin, told an AFP correspondent that he was also in the car and that the driver, refused to stop fearing the people by the road were “terrorists”.
After not reacting to warning shots, the security officers opened fire on the car, Tunisia authorities said.
Two plain clothed policemen, without warning, opened fire on the car shooting Ahlem, her cousin Ons and a third relative, the aunt claimed.”
