TUNIS (Reuters) - An armed man was arrested trying to enter the Tunisian parliament in Tunis on Tuesday, officials said.

A parliamentary official told Reuters the man was stopped at a scanner at the entrance to the parliament building. A member of parliament said the man was carrying a knife.

It was not immediately clear why the man was attempting to get into the building, the officials said.
