MOSCOW, March 19. /TASS/. The Russian Foreign Ministry has confirmed the death of a Russian female tourist, Galina Potapenko, in a gun attack on the Bardo museum in Tunis.
The ministry said the tourist that the Russian Embassy in Tunis had been actively searching in cooperation with Tunisian police and diplomats, was "found among the earlier unidentified bodies of foreign tourists".
The ministry confirmed that another female tourist, Nadezhda Lukyanova, was being treated for an arm wound at a military hospital in Tunis.
The Russian embassy said earlier that Nadezhda had arrived in Italy from the southern Russian city of Krasnodar, where she met with Galina, born in 1962, living there on a permanent basis. Both arrived in Tunis on board an Italian cruise.
On Wednesday, a group of armed attackers, clad in military uniforms, stormed the famed museum near parliament in Tunis, killing over 20 - 17 tourists among them - wounding dozens and taking several foreigners hostage.
Around 100 visitors were at the moment of the attack there and most of them were evacuated. Tourists from Japan, Colombia, Australia, the UK and some other European counties were also killed in the attack.
