Submission + - German Pirate Party protests against body scanners (lenta.ru)

ElusiveJoe writes: The German Pirate Party plans to conduct a flashmob against new body scanners in airports. Following a Delta-Northwest incident, when a terrorist carried explosives on board of an aircraft, European airports plan to toughen security by introducing new body scanners. These scanners will allow airport security personnel to see through passengers' clothes. The Pirate Party claims that it is a severe violation of privacy, as these scanners will also reveal hidden body defects.
