Tunisia said it killed the leader of the jihadis accused of organizing the massacre at its national museum, as thousands took to the streets Sunday in a march against extremism.Authorities said Lokmane Abou Sakhr -- an Algerian who was singled out as the organizer of the museum attack -- was killed along with at least eight others from the notorious Okba Ibn Nafaa Brigade. Interior Ministry spokesman Mohamed Ali Aroui earlier told AFP that security forces had killed "nine terrorists" in an operation in the west-central area of Sidi Aich against Okba Ibn Nafaa.Authorities say Okba Ibn Nafaa has been behind a series of attacks on security forces that have left some 60 dead since late 2012 .
