WASHINGTON (Reuters) - An alleged Syrian computer hacker sympathetic to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's government is due to appear in federal court in Alexandria, Virginia, on Tuesday after extradition from Germany, a U.S. law-enforcement source said on Monday.

The source said Peter Romar, 36, an alleged member of the hacking group Syrian Electronic Army, was being flown to the United States on Monday.
