Jump to navigation Jump to search
- Casualty figures in this list are the total casualties of the incident, including immediate casualties and later casualties (such as people who succumbed to their wounds long after the attacks occurred).
- Casualties listed are the victims. Perpetrator casualties are listed separately (e.g. x (+y) indicates that x victims and y perpetrators were killed/injured).
- Casualty totals may be underestimated or unavailable due to a lack of information. A figure with a plus (+) sign indicates that at least that many people have died (e.g. 10+ indicates that at least 10 people have died) – the actual toll could be considerably higher. A figure with a plus (+) sign may also indicate that more than that number of people are victims.
- If casualty figures are 20 or more, they are shown in bold. Figures for casualties more than 50 are also underlined.
- Incidents are limited to one per location per day. If multiple attacks occurred in the same place on the same day, they will be merged into a single incident.
