Germany Proposes Controversial Tactic Against Terrorism

 

The German government has proposed adding biometric measures like fingerprints to identity cards and passports, as part of a measure to prevent terrorism in the country.

"Various different measures are being considered -- whether a fingerprint scan or a face scan; it's up to the Bundestag to decide which ones are most efficient," said an Interior Ministry spokeswoman.

Activists are protesting against the measure, saying it still wouldn't provide safety against attacks like that which occurred on September 11th, but would endanger "guaranteed basic rights and freedoms of both German and non-German citizens."
