Thousands gather in Tunis on November 3, 2017 during the funeral ceremony of Tunisian police officer Riyadh Baruta, who was stabbed by a suspected Islamist on November 2, 2017. The suspect, named as Zied Gharbi, was arrested on Wednesday after two policemen suffered knife wounds near the parliament. He shouted “Allahu Akbar” - God is greatest - as he stabbed the policeman in the neck, witness and officials said. The attack was close to the Bardo museum where 21 people, mostly European tourists, were killed in an attack by gunmen in March 2015.
