TUNIS- A Tunisian soldier opened fire on other troops at a military base in the capital on Monday, an army spokesman said, clarifying that the shooting, which prompted the evacuation of a nearby school, was not an external attack.

It was not immediately clear what had triggered the shooting or if there were casualties at the Bouchoucha base.

Tunisian forces have been on alert since March when the Bardo museum in Tunis was attacked by Islamist gunmen who killed a group of foreign tourists.
