Afghanistan, the only other South Asian country in the list, is placed fourth in the Country Threat Index (CTI) compiled on Tuesday by IntelCenter, a washington-based company working for intelligence agencies.
The rankings were prepared after examining the volume of terrorist and rebel alerts, messaging traffic, videos, photos, incidents and the number of killed and injured in a country over the past 30 days.
The other countries in the top 10 are Nigeria (second), Somalia (third) followed by Yemen (five), Syria (six), Libya (seven), Egypt (nine) and Kenya (10).
There are a total of 45 countries with a CTI greater than zero. The average CTI for these countries is 74 and the global CTI is 3,313.
