Tunisian soldier shot dead after killing seven in army base shooting spree

Tunisian anti-terrorism brigade personnel enter a house to take position after a shooting at the Bouchoucha military base in TunisBy Tarek Amara TUNIS (Reuters) – A Tunisian soldier opened fire at a military base in the capital on Monday, killing seven colleagues and wounding 10 others before being shot dead himself, according to the army which said the shooter had "family problems". "According to what we know, he had some family problems, this is nothing to do with a terrorist attack." Two military helicopters hovered over the scene as police searched cars on the road to the base. Since its 2011 uprising against autocrat Zine El-Abidine Ben Ali, Tunisia has been spared the worst chaos that neighbouring countries experienced after the "Arab Spring".
