A commission of the Latin American Parliament approved a landmark anti-terrorism bill. The provisions, approved during a Dec. 8-9 meeting of the Parlatino’s Commission on Civic Security, the Combat and Prevention of the Drug Trade, Terrorism and Organized Crime, acknowledge the complicity of people who incite or induce others to carry out terrorist attacks, and condemn the misuse of e-mail or the Internet to abet terrorism. The bill is part of a larger law on security issues that must still be considered by the full Parlatino and then ratified by its member nations.
