Protests in Tunisia Over Return of Militants

Tunisia's Parliament has been surrounded by hundreds of people, angry at the return of extremists who have fought abroad. The protest was prompted by the Berlin truck attack by Tunisian Anis Amri.
Organizers said 1,500 people had attended Saturday's rally in the capital Tunis, many carrying banners reading "Close the doors to terrorism" and "No tolerance, no return."
Protesters also waved Tunisian flags and sang the national anthem.
Activists said they were angry at the lack of government action to prevent militants who fought overseas from returning to the country without facing punishment, Deutsche Welle reported.
The demonstration was held less than a day after Tunisian police said they had arrested three alleged terrorists connected to Tunisian-born Anis Amri, the main suspect in Monday's Berlin Christmas market attack.
More than 5,000 Tunisians are fighting for terrorist groups abroad, mainly in Iraq, Syria or neighboring Libya, according to a UN working group on mercenaries.
