Tunisia's president vowed "no mercy" against terror groups Wednesday after gunmen wearing military uniforms stormed the country's national museum, killing 17 foreign tourists and two Tunisians in the worst attack in more than a decade.Visitors from Italy, France, Germany, Poland and Spain were among the dead in the noon assault on Bardo museum inside the heavily guarded parliament compound in central Tunis, premier Habib Essid said. A police officer and a cleaning woman were the Tunisian victims, he said. Several Islamist militant groups have emerged in Tunisia since the uprising, and authorities estimate about 3,000 Tunisians have also joined fighters in Iraq and Syria, raising fears they could return and mount attacks at home.Wednesday's assault was the worst attack involving foreigners in Tunisia since an Al-Qaeda suicide bombing on a synagogue killed 21 people on the tourist island of Djerba in 2002 .
