IntelCenter released Country Threat Index ranking 45 countries in terms of terrorist threat

Dec 10, 2014 19:00 IST

US based think tank IntelCenter on 9 December 2014 released Country Threat Index (CTI) ranking 45 countries in terms of terrorist and rebel threat to a country.

The Country Threat Index (CTI) rankings of these countries have been prepared after examining the volume of terrorist and rebel alerts, messaging traffic, videos, photos, incidents and the number of killed and injured in a country over the past 30 days.

According to the CTI,
• There are a total of 45 countries with a CTI greater than zero.
• The average CTI for these countries is 74 whereas the Global CTI is 3313.
• The higher the CTI score the greater the risk in that country.
• A low CTI does not necessarily reflect the absence of risk, however, it does reflect a lower level of activity over the preceding 30 days
