Domestic cases were 66, compared to 63 international cases.

One recent attack in the U.S. involved a mass shooting that left 11 people dead at a Pittsburgh synagogue.

The Internet has been a key source of radicalization in the U.S.

“Terrorism moves at the speed of the Internet,” the official said.
