TUNIS, Tunisia (AP) – Tunisia’s top security official says 23 people have now been arrested from the group suspected of being behind the museum attack that killed 21 people.

The Interior minister says one Algerian and two Moroccan suspects are still at large.

The March 18 attack was claimed by an al-Qaida rival, the Islamic State group, but members of an al-Qaida-linked group claim allegiance to both radical groups.

The minister says at least 80 percent of the group behind the attack is being detained.
