The largest declines in 2018 were recorded in Iraq.

From a high of 33,555 deaths in 2014, when the Islamic State group lured tens of thousands of jihadists to the Middle East, the number of terrorism deaths has more than halved to 15,952 in 2018, the index published by the Sydney-based Institute for Economics & Peace showed.

Afghanistan, where the Taliban succeeded IS as the world's deadliest terror group, topped the table with 1,443 attacks killing 7,379 people, ahead of Iraq with 1,131 attacks that left 1,054 dead and Nigeria, with 562 attacks that killed 2,040 people.In Europe, where no major terror attack was recorded in 2018, the number of deaths fell from over 200 in 2017 to 62.

The report also noted that while"the intensity of terrorism has declined...terrorism is still widespread and increasing."
