The European Union's top justice official wants a log kept of all non-EU citizens entering and leaving the 27-nation union as part of a raft of new anti-terror measures. EU Justice and Home Affairs Commissioner Franco Frattini said Monday he would include the register in proposals he presents next month to member states. Non-EU nationals would be electronically registered with biometric identifiers under the plan, Frattini said at a meeting in Portugal of EU ministers in charge of policing. The register is "extremely necessary" in order to crack down on people who are granted permission to stay for a restricted time but melt away when the period expires, he said.
