The terrorist attack at the Bardo Museum in Tunis just last month, killed 21 tourists and one Tunisian. The assault was random, the 3 gunmen just sprayed with bullets, the first busload of tourists to arrive in front of them. But the target was specific, tourism, right at the heart of the Tunisian economy. The government's response has been vigorous, Tunis-based journalist Eric Reidy told KSFR's Dave Marash on HERE AND THERE, to make tourists feel the country is safe to visit. But, Reidy said, some critics think the security crackdown has gone too far.
