THE LONG NIGHT OF TERROR
An atmosphere of fear and violence blanketed the world this year after several high-profile attacks – both organised and lone wolf – were launched in different cities across the world.

In the next few pages, we pay our respects to the victims and honour the resilience of the survivors.
