Overzicht van Terrorisme
To complete our series on terrorism we created an overview on worldwide terrorism since 1970.
DATA VAN DE DAG - Europol reported on all the terrorism attacks in 2015 today. We've combined their data for the last 5 years. It paints a bleak picture.
With the updated version of the Global Terrorism Database we've created an interactive worldmap. All attacks with known locations (>150.000) are shown per month.
A map circulated on Twitter with the statement that is showed all car bombings in Baghdad for the last 10 years. It was a viral hoax. We've constructed a map with data for the 10 years between 2006 and 2015 with all known locations and number of attacks in Iraq.
This weekend a terrorism attack in Bagdad killed over 200 people and last week an attack on an airport in Turkey killed over 40. Some media outlets suggested that the attacks might be related to the period of Ramadan. We used data from the Global Terrorism Database to check if there's a significant association to be found in the last 10 years.
DATA VAN DE DAG - Yesterday in a terrorism attack on the Ataturk Airport in Turkey at least 44 were killed. Terrorism seems to be on the rise there. We gathered the data to give the long term perspective.
ACTUALITEIT - A plane from Egyptian Airlines was hijacked today. Once it was a favorite way of terrorists and other people to get attention or money.
ACTUALITEIT - Because of the recent terrorism attacks in Europe we've plotted the GTD data and most recent figures in several graphs for Western Europe.
AANVRAAG DATA - For facilitating discussion per request the terrorist attacks in Western Europe between 1970 and 2014 were split between Islamic and other groups. The number of Islamic terrorist attacks is low, the number of people killed by it are high the last 10 years.
DATA VAN DE DAG - Bij de aanslagen gisteren in Parijs zijn naar nu bekend zeker 130 mensen overleden. Dat maakt dat voor West Europa 2015 qua terrorisme nu al het meest ernstige jaar is sinds 2004.
