The other three countries include Afghanistan, Iraq and the Philippines.
The total number of terrorist attacks worldwide last year decreased by 23 percent.
The decline in terrorist violence was largely due to dramatically fewer attacks and deaths in Iraq, Nathan Sales, State Department coordinator of counterterrorism, said during a conference call with reporters on Thursday.
