Afghanistan’s Taliban has overtaken the Islamic State armed group to become the world’s most dangerous terrorist organization, a survey of global terrorism trends has found.

Axar.az reports citing RFI that figures in the Global Terrorism Index - published by the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP) think tank - show Afghanistan had the largest increase in terror-related deaths (6,103) in 2018.

“The situation in Afghanistan is remarkable because the Taliban and the local IS chapter there are only active in that one country,” says Serge Stroobants, the IEP’s Europe, Middle East, and North Africa director – adding that Afghanistan’s unstable political environment has allowed insurgency activity to flourish.
