U.S. law requires the Secretary of State to provide Congress, by April 30 of each year, a full and complete report on terrorism with regard to those countries and groups meeting criteria set forth in the legislation. This annual report is entitled Country Reports on Terrorism. Beginning with the report for 2004, it replaced the previously published Patterns of Global Terrorism.

NOTE: The table on International Counterterrorism Conventions in Chapter Four has been updated with a new table that corrects formatting errors resulting from a file conversion problem in the final stages of production.
