Crikey, I didn’t realise that Northern Ireland was still such a problem.

…makes the Foreign Office advice on Tunisia look a bit limp-wristed, I’d say…as I recall after Birmingham no town centre booze-up was complete without at least one bomb scare! :-)

Interesting that mainland Europe is highlighted throughout the ’70’s, fiirst the Bader Meinhoff (Germany/France) gang, then Eta (Spain) and lastly the Red Brigades (Italy, with a little help from the CIA if the recent documentary is true). Then, from ’71 the weeping sore that is NI, and a huge glowing red blob over Central America at the beginning of the ’80s. All very salutary.

Coming as I do fro South Africa, I am intrigued to see that bar for one light in the Natal area, no act of terrorism has occurred in Southern Africa since 1970!!?? I might beg to differ.

Have to concur with D Peddle, no heat signature for Southern Africa (Angola, Congo, Mozambique, Rhodesia, SWA?) seems a glaring oversight, likewise there are far too few heat signatures for South America.

Maybe the definitions of “civil war” and “terrorism” should be revisited?

The wars that followed from the outbreak of extreme violence in Rwanda were not (all) civil wars but better organised parties throwing themselves in the melee, to get some loot. Body count:
– about 4 mln
– mostly civilians
