Seeing how we have this "How real is the terrorist threat?" topic popping from time to time, I thought it could be a good idea to put down some of the results I got.
Basic statistics for 2009*1
Number of terrorist attacks: 715
People dead: 4407
People injured: 11725
This gives us an average of 1.95 attacks/day, 12 people killed and 32 injured daily.
Bloodiest month: September (639 dead, 1620 injured)
Largest number of casualties in single attack: 155 dead and 500 injured on 25th of October in Baghdad.
Most dangerous places: Baghdad, Mosul and Peshawar (almost 1/3rd of all attacks occured in this three cities).
