Eight Mexicans (four women and four men) are safe and sound after Wednesday’s terrorist attack at the Bardo National Museum in Tunis, the Foreign Relations Secretariat (SRE) said. The attack killed at least 20 people, 17 of whom were foreign tourists.
“Our diplomatic representative in Algeria was able to contact one of the Mexican hostages, who confirmed that all eight Mexican nationals were not physically harmed and that Tunisian authorities took control of the situation. They have left the Bardo Museum and will leave for Barcelona in the next few hours on the cruise ship they were on,” the SRE reported.
After the attacks began, security protocols were put in place through the Mexican embassy in Algeria, which also covers Tunisia, the embassy reported. Contact was then established with the honorary consul in the Tunisian capital.
The SRE gave assurances that the ambassador in Algeria was in direct contact with the Mexican citizens. The honorary consul in Tunis and the Mexican embassy in Algeria worked with the Tunisian authorities to ensure that the Mexicans were safe and able to leave Tunis.
“Our embassy will continue to offer consular protection when necessary. Our embassies will remain close to Mexican citizens who find themselves in danger while abroad to offer any attention they may require,” SRE stated.
According to the reports issued by Prime Minister Habib Essid, Spanish, Italian, German and Polish tourists were among those who were killed. A Tunisian and a police officer were also killed in the attack.
