Nigeria Emerged As The World’s Third Most Dangerous Country Based On Terrorist & Rebel Activity.

The IntelCenter’s ‘Top 10 Most Dangerous Countries‘ list as of March 2015 is topped by the Middle East region, with Iraq and Syria ranked No 1 and 2 respectively.  IntelCenter’s Country Threat Index (CTI) examines the volume of terrorist and rebel alerts, messaging traffic, videos, photos, incidents and the number of people killed and injured in a country and runs it through an algorithm to assign the country its CTI. The higher the CTI the greater the risk.

It does, however, reflect a lower level of activity over the preceding 30 days (of the analysis), which means high-volume activity is unlikely but one-off events are always a possibility,” IntelCenter, a Washington-based company working for intelligence agencies said in a statement. “The CTI should never be the sole measure of risk in a country but rather one factor to take into consideration. The CTI is based solely on terrorist and rebel related activity. It does not evaluate other risk factors such as crime and political instability,” it said.

Other countries on this top 10 include Somalia (4th), Afghanistan (5), Libya (6th), Yemen (7th), Pakistan (8th), Ukraine (9th) and Egypt (10th). The Global CTI is arrived at by adding up each individual country’s CTI. It serves as an overall indicator of global terrorist and rebel activity, it added.
