TUNIS - Tunisia's army will be deployed to protect major cities to increase security after the militant attack on a museum that killed 23 people, mostly foreign tourists, the president's office said on Thursday.

"After a meeting with the armed forces, the president has decided large cities will be secured by the army," the president's office said in a statement.

Security forces have also arrested four people in direct connection with Wednesday's museum attack, authorities said.
