UN Security Council passes anti-terror resolution to stem attacks against civilians

Condemning terrorism as one of the most serious threats to peace and security, the Security Council, on 8 October, unanimously called on countries to prosecute or extradite anyone supporting terrorist acts or participating in the planning of such schemes. Amnesty International has raised concerns that the resolution could undermine the right to freedom of religion and expression as a result of a broad definition of terrorism.
