When the Afghan Taliban engineered a prison break in the southern city of Kandahar in June, nearly 900 inmates escaped, but not a single one had been fingerprinted or photographed.
Interpol, the international police organization, has launched an effort to help Afghanistan boost its police capabilities.
Currently, no Afghan police offices in the country's 34 provinces can take fingerprints and send them to Kabul to be entered into international databases, said B.S. Sardar Awa, head of Afghanistan's Interpol office. Only police in Kabul are able to submit information to Interpol.
Following the visit of Interpol Secretary- General Ronald K. Noble to Kabul last week, Awa said he hoped to soon equip five to seven provinces with both fingerprinting and DNA-testing equipment.
The Interpol initiative could help alert police around the world when their wanted criminals are captured in the Afghan-Pakistan region.
An increasing number of terror plots meant to be unleashed in Europe are being traced back to Pakistan's tribal areas near the Afghan border, where extremists get training and weapons.

Fingerprints? They don't even have photographs worth a damn with half their faces covered in beards. Anyone could be hiding behind them.

They only have to wear a woman's Burkah and no one can go near them let alone look at them.

Not to mention the millions of places these guys can hide. And yeah, do something about those damned beards!
