Pakistan eighth most dangerous country in the world


London: Pakistan has emerged as the world’s eighth most dangerous country in a latest analysis of the top 10 danger zones based on terrorist and rebel activity.Country Threat Index (CTI) examines the volume of terrorist and rebel alerts, messaging traffic, videos, photos, incidents and the number killed and injured in a country and runs it through an algorithm to assign the country its CTI.The countries completing the top 10 include Nigeria (3rd), Somalia (4th), Libya (6th), Yemen (7th), Ukraine (9th) and Egypt (10th).The higher the CTI the greater the risk.In India’s neighbourhood, Pakistan with a CTI of 122 is joined by Afghanistan with a CTI of 186 and ranked fifth.”A low CTI does not necessarily reflect the absence of risk as the US in the lead-up to 9/11 would have had a low CTI.
