Do­mes­tic terrorism.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Out of 45 do­mes­tic ter­ror­ist at­tacks car­ried out in Aus­tria, the Czech Repub­lic, Italy, Spain and Greece last year, nearly half oc­curred in Greece, ac­cord­ing to a Europol re­port re­leased yes­ter­day. A to­tal of 20 at­tacks, at­trib­uted to guer­rilla or­ga­ni­za­tions, were recorded in Greece, ac­cord­ing to the re­port which also notes that six out of the seven fa­tal­i­ties oc­curred in Greece. The re­port noted a 30 per­cent in­crease in do­mes­tic ter­ror­ist at­tacks in Greece last year. It also drew a con­nec­tion be­tween a grow­ing re­ces­sion in Europe and a spike in at­tacks linked to self-styled an­ar­chists and ex­trem­ists. The re­port noted that po­lit­i­cal un­rest in North Africa in­creased the risk of ter­ror­ist at­tacks by mem­bers of Is­lamic fun­da­men­tal­ist groups such as Al-Qaida.
