Terrorist convictions reach 35,000
Sunday 04 September 2011
At least 35,000 people worldwide have been convicted as terrorists in the decade since the 11 September attacks on the United States. But while some bombed hotels or blew up buses, others were put behind bars for demonstrating or blogging.
In the first tally of global anti-terror arrests and convictions, the Associated Press found that, since 9/11, arrests of terrorism suspects have totalled 119,044, and convictions 35,117. The figures relate to 66 countries. The investigation showed:
* Turkey alone accounted for a third of all convictions, with 12,897.
* Since amending its terror laws in 2004, Pakistan has made 29,050 arrests in all.
Yet terror attacks in Pakistan are still on the rise. Pakistan suffers more deaths from terror than any other country in the world, except for Iraq.
