Domestic Terrorist Groups
Terrorism is one the challenges facing the world in the 21st century. Terrorism includes a wide range of activities which are aimed at instilling fear on individuals through militant activities which are directed toward the non-combatant segment of the population. Terrorism activities have been used to advance the political and social interest of a group or a section of the society.
Although terrorism has been taking place throughout the history of mankind, it is in the 20th and 21st century that they have been perceived as serious threats to world security. Few events, especially the September 11 attack on Twin Tower, July 2007 bombing in London, and many others have redefined the real threat of terrorism in the world. However, terrorism is not new to the world. It has just taken a new dimension and received a wide publicity due to the advance in human civilization.
