Fingerprints to Appear on German Passports

Germany has approved a change to a law allowing digital fingerprints to be saved on passport chips. The change, which accommodates the European Union's directive to make travel documents more difficult to forge, will take effect in 2007, the Khaleej Times reported Wednesday. Germany since 2005 has used chips to store a digital photo of the passport holder.
