Terrorism Risk Index 2010: Iraq Tops The List (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Maplecroft, an organization that assesses geopolitical risks for companies and investors, has compiled its 2010 Terrorism Risk Index (TRI). The index ranks countries not only on the possibilities of a terrorist attack, but on the possibilities for a large number of casualties.

Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan top the list, somewhat unsurprisingly, and Thailand, previously number 11, has moved up into the top ten.

The United States come in at 46, higher than France (56) and Germany (81) but lower than the UK (41) and China (43).

Al Jazeera notes that the US has been militarily involved in the top four countries most at risk of terrorism.
