LONDON, November 17. /TASS/. The number of lives lost to terrorism worldwide grew 80% in 2014 year-on-year against the background of spreading armed conflicts, reaching the highest level ever recorded, says the 2015 Global Terrorism Index Report published in London by the Institute for Economics and Peace.
The survey analyzing the impact of terrorism in 162 countries, home to 99.6% of global population, said 32,658 people were killed by terrorists last year.
This is nine times more than at the start of this century, the authors of the report say, putting the number of people killed by terrorism in 2000 at 3,329people.
The highest terrorist activity is concentrated in five states — Iraq, Nigeria, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Syria, the report says. These countreis accounted for 78% of the death toll from terrorism last year.
India, Yemen, Somali, Libya and Thailand are also on the top ten list.
