US sharing PNR data with India
Washington, Dec 10: The US is negotiating new agreements with six top countries,including India, on information sharing about passenger travel, known colloquially as PNR, passenger name records, a senior official of the Obama administration said.
"I could mention Najibullah Zazi, David Headley are just two of the individuals that we have helped identify through the PNR data," Janet Napolitano, secretary of homeland security, said here Friday.
Like Headley, who has confessed to his role in the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks, Zazi, an Afghan-American, has pleaded guilty to planning suicide bombings on the New York City subway system.
The new future of homeland security is to merge security interests with travel, trade and commercial interests, she said during a discussion on international security partnerships at the Council on Foreign Relations, a Washington think tank. IANS
