Colombia is the country most affected by terrorism in the Americas, the Institute for Economics and Peace announced Tuesday.
The institute has created a Global Terrorism Index that ranks Colombia 13th globally, between DR Congo and Syria, with 80 terror attacks in 2011.
The FARC was responsible for the majority of attacks in Colombia and was the third most active terrorist organization globally over the last decade. However Colombia has also seen a significant fall in terrorism over the same period, followed by a small rise in the last few years.
The Global Terrorism Index was topped in 2011 by Iraq, followed by Afghanistan and Pakistan. Globally there were 7,343 terrorist attacks. North America is the least likely to suffer from a terrorist attack, followed by Western Europe.
