The curator of the Tunisian museum targeted by a terrorist attack announced today it is postponing its reopening, for logistical and security reasons.

The National Bardo Museum in Tunis was scheduled to reopen today for the first time since gunmen opened fire on tourists on March 18. The attack killed 21 people, and two gunmen were killed by police.
