Random violence against many people by people who don't agree with whats going on.Planting bombs regardless of the consequences hurting anyone that happens to be there.Deliberately spreading fear among innocent people.Can you imagine shopping in the local high street and all the time worrying about a bomb going off and not being able to do a thing about it.Making people live in fear is a terrible thing and how anyone could do that to their fellow human beings is a crime which will be paid for on the other side.
