Religious Hostilities Worse Around the Globe


Religious hostilities around the world are getting worse, according to a new Pew Research report.

The report says social hostilities involving religion reached a six-year peak in 2012.

Thirty-three percent of nearly 200 countries and territories examined had a high, or very high rate of incidents in 2012, up from 20 percent in mid-2007.

Researchers also found the incidents increased in every major world region except for the Americas.
