India among nations most SCARRED by terrorism

India, Pakistan and Afghanistan are among the nations most impacted by terrorism in 2012, according to a new global study, which said the terror strikes worldwide had increased fourfold since the start of the Iraq war in 2003.

The 2012 Global Peace Index states that while terrorism fatalities fell by 25 per cent since 2007, coinciding with the wind-down of the Iraq war, Iraq still remained the country that suffered most from terrorism in 2011.

Only 31 of the 158 countries ranked have not experienced a terrorist attack since 2001.

The index scores the countries over the last 10 years and takes into account factors like number of terrorist incidents, fatalities, injuries and property damage.
