The Trump White House has released a list of 78 terror attacks from the past two years. The list covers the September 2014 to December 2016 period and includes many incidents which received a large amount of coverage when they took place including the Paris attack of November 2015.

President Trump issued a tweet today in which he called on courts to "act fast" on terrorism. He wrote: "The threat from radical Islamic terrorism is very real, just look at what is happening in Europe and the Middle East. Courts must act fast!"

According to the White House, 754 people were killed in the 78 attacks, while a further 1,744 were wounded.

Thirteen of the 78 listed attacked were in France, followed by the United States in second place with 11.
