In the US, domestic terrorism is mainly driven by single individuals who target populated spaces, such as schools and malls. At the moment, the US also has to deal with terror groups such as the Islamic State and Al-Qaida. While most domestic terrorists intent on killing, the international groups usually indulge in kidnapping and hostage-taking on top of murder. Most domestic terrorists indulge in terrorism purely for personal reasons, while international terror groups are driven by hate and desire for power.
