Terrorism has shifted

By Matthew Philips and Evan Applegate

AL-QAEDA IN THE ARABIAN PENINSULA

51 attacks in 2011

Yemen-based AQAP is al-Qaeda’s most active branch.

BOKO HARAM

88 attacks in 2011

The jihadist group has stoked sectarian conflict inside Nigeria.

TALIBAN

143 attacks in 2011

The Afghan and Pakistani variants of the Taliban increasingly employ terrorism as part of their wars against NATO and Pakistani forces. Attacks have included suicide bombings of government institutions and assassinations of public officials.

Eleven years into the war on terror, al-Qaeda’s crippled leadership now makes more YouTube videos than bombs. Yet terrorism is as pervasive as it was in 2008. The most active groups are now in Yemen and West Africa. They’ve struck more often but with less effect, targeting their fellow countrymen more than Westerners.
