UN boss warns about causes of terrorism

United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres has cited state violence and abuse of power as the final tipping points that lead to terrorism.

Speaking during the opening of the UN counter terrorism conference in Kenya, Mr Guterres said that while extremism could not be justified, the world must acknowledge it does not rise in a vacuum.

He cited human rights violations and bad governance as some reasons that trigger radicalisation.

All UN member states have been invited to the conference to discuss how to prevent and counter rising terrorism across the world.
