Privacy rights 'fragile' in 2007
Threats to personal privacy got more severe in 2007, a report has claimed.

Compiled by Privacy International and the Electronic Privacy Information Center the report details global trends in privacy protection and surveillance. It found that in 2007 more nations than ever ranked as places where surveillance had become "endemic". The move toward greater surveillance had left the fundamental right to a private life "fragile and exposed", the report said.
