    BRITAIN, Egypt and Jordan suffered their worst terrorist attacks this year and hundreds more lives were lost in bombings elsewhere, making 2005 a good year for groups like al-Qaeda, analysts said.

    At the same time, police and intelligence authorities also enjoyed success, arresting hundreds of suspects in numerous operations over the past 12 months.

    But more violence looks likely in 2006, with Italy seen as a prime target as it hosts the Winter Olympics and prepares for an election, analysts warned.

    This year began fairly peacefully on the attack front, aside from the daily carnage in Iraq, which is still an effective war zone nearly three years after the US-led invasion.
