Italy arrests suspect in Tunisian museum attack

A Moroccan man was arrested in Italy on suspicion of helping to organize and execute the March 18 attack on Tunisia's Bardo Museum that left 22 people dead. Abdelmajid Touil was arrested Tuesday night on a Tunisian arrest warrant at the home of his mother and two brothers in Gaggiano, near Milan, anti-terrorism investigator Bruno Megale told reporters. Touji first arrived in Sicily on an immigrant smuggler’s boat on Feb. 17 and was issued with an expulsion decree. Italian police believe he returned to Tunisia to help set up the March 18 attack.
