Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos offered his condolences to the families of the two Colombian victims of the deadly Tunisia museum attack.

Santos said he had spoken to General Jose Arturo Camelo, whose wife and son were killed in the attack.

Santos recalled what General Camelo had told him, saying:

Look at the irony of life, all my life I've been like a soldier fighting against terrorism, combating terrorism, and now terrorism in a place far away from Colombia has taken my wife and my son, a son who had just graduated with a master's degree from Madrid.

They went to Tunisia as a gift for my son.
