Bogota: Two Colombians killed Wednesday when gunmen stormed Tunisia`s national museum were a mother and her child who were enjoying a family holiday, the foreign ministry in Bogota said.

The father of the family survived, it said, giving no more details.

The Colombians were among 17 tourists of various nationalities and two Tunisians who died in an attack that raised fears for the birthplace of the Arab Spring.

"We lament the death of 2 Colombians in Tunis and offer condolences to their family," President Juan Manuel Santos said on Twitter.

Colombia "voices its full commitment to respect for human rights. As such, it underscores Colombia`s flat rejection of acts of terror and violence," the foreign ministry added.
