Terrorism is the world's single largest international problems, Terrorism has been around since the world was created, it can be anything from the slightest attack on another persons beliefs physical abuse to the world's largest attack on the twin towers in America. Terrorism means "The unlawful use or threatened use of force or violence by a person or an organized group against people or property with the intention of intimidating or coercing societies or governments, often for ideological or political reasons" There are many different terrorist organisations all over the world to many to list so here are just a few.
