"Mindless policy" by governments to counter the growing scourge of terrorism around the world will only make things worse.

That's according to the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, unveiling his Plan of Action to Prevent Violent Extremism on Friday.

He delivered his plan to the General Assembly saying that "cool heads and common sense" were needed together with a unified global approach that respected the rule of law.
