Knesset approves extension of biometric database pilot

The Knesset on Tuesday voted 41-32 in favor of a nine month extension of the current biometric database pilot program despite signs that support for the initiative, even within the coalition, has eroded somewhat.

The vote ratified a request by Interior Minister Arye Deri on Sunday for an extension until December 31, 2016 to better learn the issues since he is relatively new in the job.
