According to a report by CNN, the number of attacks and fatalities as a result of terrorist attacks hit a record high in 2012 and are on track to exceed that number in 2013:

More than 8,500 terrorist attacks killed nearly 15,500 people last year as violence tore through Africa, Asia and the Middle East, according to the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism.

That’s a 69% rise in attacks and an 89% jump in fatalities from 2011, said START, one of the world’s leading terrorism-trackers.
