EU - Considers ban on using Internet to distribute bomb-making instructions

In a presentation before the European Parliament last week, EU security commissioner Franco Frattini outlined a new set of anti-terror proposals, including plans for a Europol explosives database, airplane passenger list databases, and legislation that would criminalize publication of bomb-making instructions on the Internet. The proposals are based on the findings of a research group that included law enforcement officials and experts from private industry.
