U.S. warns: Al-Qaida weaker, but resilient
Terrorism report cites use of Internet, technology by cells

In its annual report on worldwide terrorism, the department singled out Iran as the most active state sponsor of terrorism, saying that its Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and Ministry of Intelligence and Security directly have been involved in the planning and support of terrorist acts.
Overall, the report tallied about 11,000 terror attacks around the world last year, resulting in more than 14,600 deaths. That is almost a fourfold increase from 2004, though the agency blames the change largely on new ways of tallying the incidents.
