Germany decides against airport body scanners -

BERLIN — Germany says it won't introduce full-body scanners at its airports yet after a 10-month trial failed to satisfy officials entirely.

Authorities tested the scanners at Hamburg airport through this July on passengers who volunteered to use them.

But the Interior Ministry said Wednesday it has decided against introducing them permanently for the time being.

Ministry spokesman Jens Teschke says officials aren't yet satisfied with the machines' software. He says it has proven too sensitive to things such as creases in suits.

Officials will continue to work on solving the glitches.

The scanners -- which produce an outline of passengers' bodies beneath their clothes -- have been tested at airports in Britain, the Netherlands and the U.S. but met with privacy objections in much of Europe.
