Tunisian government says it has jailed or closely monitored 800 jihadists who have returned from foreign battlefields in the past decade.
Government spokesperson, Iyed Dahmani says some are in prison, some are under house arrest and others are under close surveillance.
Concern about their return has increased since Tunisian Anis Amri was identified as the suspected Berlin Christmas market attacker.
The national union of internal security forces has called on the government to strip Tunisian jihadists of their nationality.
But, however, President Beji Caid Essebsi quoted the constitution, saying the authorities cannot prevent a Tunisian from returning home.
