The number of people killed by terrorists worldwide in 2013 rose by 60 percent compared to the previous year from 11,133 to 17,958 with four Sunni Muslim extremist groups responsible for two-thirds of all fatalities, according to a comprehensive annual study.
Eighty-two percent of fatalities occurred in just five countries Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Nigeria and Syria, although the number of countries that experienced more than 50 terror-related deaths also rose to 24, compared with 15 the previous year.
Four Sunni groups were responsible for 66 percent of all terror fatalities in 2013. In order of deadliness, they were the Taliban in Afghanistan and its Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) affiliate in neighboring Pakistan; al-Qaeda and its various affiliates; ISIS and its al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI) precursor; and Boko Haram in Nigeria.
Rounding out the top 10 on the GTI were Somalia, India, the Philippines, Yemen and Thailand.

Given the countries named, most of these deaths are Muslim fighters and their adherents.
So, we’ve got that going for us.
Interesting. Thanks for posting. Lots of workplace violence issues.
Best to have the Jihad over there. The Sunnis have been killing each other, Shia, and other Moslems since the 7th Century.
Unfortunately, many innocent Christians are also being murdered over there.
[and 85-90% of the world's Muslims are Sunni, IOW, Shiites kill twice or three times as many per capita]
