    (ANSAmed) - BRUSSELS, AUGUST 24 - The Schengen Information System (SIS), the European Union database that supports border control operations, has collected 70 million pieces of data in just five months, since April when systematic EU external border controls were put into place to combat terrorism and irregular migration, according to figures released by the spokesman for the European Commission.

    As a result, alerts have increased "exponentially" for individuals in the system that manages passage between EU borders, not necessarily for terrorism or serious crimes but also for common crimes or other judicial reasons.

    In some countries, the number of consultations and instances of using the database for research have quadrupled.(ANSAmed).
