Fear of an imminent terrorist attack runs deep around the world, reports new poll

A new poll of people from eight countries around the world finds that the fear of an imminent terrorist attack is a top concern of all people, most of whom expect extremist groups to acquire weapons of mass destruction, reports Carol Morello in the Washington Post.

The poll was commissioned by the Center for Strategic and International Studies and it was taken by approximately 1,000 residents in each of China, Egypt, France, Great Britain, India, Indonesia, Turkey, and the United States.

Most of those surveyed approved such measures as the monitoring of phone calls, emails and social media; requiring identification cards for citizens; intensive screening of immigrants; and bans on inflammatory religious speech.
