TUNIS, Tunisia, April 2 (UPI) — Tunisian jihadists are flocking to Syria to fight alongside Islamist forces to topple the Damascus regime, just as they did in Iraq after the 2003 U.S. invasion.

There's a growing fear in the North African country where the pro-democracy uprisings of the so-called Arab Spring were triggered in January 2011 that the militants will return and take over the revolution from moderate parties.
