Some top newspapers around the world will publish that data, and that includes UK’s Guardian. In order to help people navigate the enormous amount of information easily, it has built an interactive guide to go through various sections of that data quickly and easily.
You can search for specific keywords or search by the country. If you choose the search on map option, you could go for the originating country or country referenced in the data.
