Spain suffered the most from terrorism as it had the highest number of victims of terrorism in the European Union, according to a document presented on Friday.

The document - Black and White Book of Terrorism in Europe - showed that a total of 658 people were killed by terrorist actions in the EU between 2000 and 2016.

Of those 658, 253 were murdered in Spain and 250 in France, it showed.

According to the report, 13.8% of those victims died in suicide attacks. "Jihadism has been the most mortal actor, causing 82.8% of the victims," it said.
