Terrorists often wage their war on tourists and the fate of the 224 passengers on flight KGL9268 appears to be another example of bystanders becoming victims in an ideological battle they never asked to fight.

Topics covered:
• Terrorism exclusions.
• Varying levels of cover.
• Constrained by reinsurance.
• Cost impacts quality.
• Terrorist attacks on tourists.
