Iran to debate bill on fingerprinting US visitors

October 4, 2006 03:06

Iran's conservative-dominated parliament voted Tuesday to debate a bill that would require the government to fingerprint all US citizens visiting Iran. The draft law would require all American citizens be fingerprinted when they enter Iran. The measure is in retaliation for the US fingerprinting Iranian travelers visiting the United States, a procedure implemented in 2002 for Iranians along with nationals of some other countries. A majority of lawmakers voted in favor of discussing the bill, but a date has not been set for its debate.
