Algeria: Global Report Hails Algeria Security Progress

Algeria, the United States and Colombia have made the greatest progress over the past decade in reducing the impact of terrorism, APS reported Tuesday (December 4th), citing a new survey of 158 countries. "Algeria has experienced a steady decline in terrorist operations from 109 in 2002 to only 15 in 2011," the Institute for Economics and Peace said.

The number of deaths also fell, the New York-based institute reported: from 500 in 2002 to 25 in 2011.
