Top 10 Deadliest Terrorist Attacks in the World

There is no universal agreement on the legal definition of terrorism, although there exists a consensus academic definition created by scholars.

Various legal systems and government agencies use different definitions of terrorism, and governments have been reluctant to formulate an agreed-upon and legally binding definition. Difficulties arise from the fact that the term has become politically and emotionally charged. A simple definition proposed to the United Nations Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice (CCPCJ) by terrorism studies scholar Alex P. Schmid in 1992, based on the already internationally accepted definition of war crimes, as “peacetime equivalents of war crimes”, was not accepted.
