Around 1,000 people took to the streets of central Tunis on Sunday to protest the repatriation of Tunisian nationals who have ties to jihadists or have participated in combat activities in the Middle East.

The protest comes after German Chancellor Angela Merkel announced that her cabinet wants to accelerate the repatriation procedures for Tunisian nationals in the aftermath of the Berlin Christmas market truck attack.
