The United States based think-tank named IntelCenter has released the list of the 10 most dangerous countries in the world, based on the Country Threat Index (CTI), which examines the terrorist and rebel activity in a country over the past 30 days (till 8 March).



IntelCenter’s Country Threat Index (CTI) examines,

  • The volume of terrorist and rebel alerts
  • Messaging traffic
  • Videos and photos
  • Incidents and the number killed and injured in a country

The higher the CTI the greater the risk.
