EU wants to ban the bomb recipe sites


The EU is serious about closing down Internet sites that teach users how to build bombs and will ask member states to ratify proposals during anti-terrorism talks in November. 

Other anti-terrorism measuers to be proposed will include making the private data of airline passengers available, and automated warnings to police forces when explosives are stolen.
There have been a number of cases around the world where bombs, crafted from instructions found on the Internet, have been detonated.
A spot-check on Internet search engines reveals that bomb-making instructions are readily available and accessible to anyone.
