A day after the Tunisian government said it had killed the orchestrator of the massacre at the National Bardo Museum and rounded up most of those involved, another group of militants declaring themselves to be members of the Islamic State operating inside Tunisia claimed responsibility for the attack and threatened more in the future.
The announcement, made in a five-minute audio recording that was posted Monday to YouTube, was the latest of several media messages since the attack on the museum on March 18 but was the clearest claim of responsibility by members of the Islamic State.
The new group identifies itself as Jund al-Khilafah, or Soldiers of the Caliphate, and says its members are operating inside Tunisia. The group has declared its loyalty to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of he Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL.
