Britain, US in talks on international criminal database

The FBI told The Guardian daily of its proposed “Server in the Sky” programme, which would link the policing networks of the United States’ allies in the so-called “war on terror” — the newspaper said that in addition to Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand would be involved.
“Server in the Sky is an FBI initiative designed to foster the advanced search and exchange of biometric information on a global scale,” the FBI told the paper.
