ABSTRACT
Editorial. A distinctly modern phenomenon, it is made possible by communications systems that effectively relay the terrorists' `message.' The line between `pure' terrorism (i.e. attacks on innocent bystanders) and guerilla combat has become blurred; the one thing that is clear is that traditional distinctions between armed forces and civilians are no longer respected.
