Problem

Urban terrorism

Other Names:
Urban guerrillas
Nature:

Urban terrorism is the targeted use of terrorism in urban populations in order to cause the most harm, injury, death, or property damage. Since urban areas have significantly higher population densities than rural areas, targeting those areas can maximize the effect of the terrorist attack.

Incidence:

A 1992 UK report estimated £800 million in property damage after terrorist bomb blasts at two London sites in April 1991.
