Mass Murder is the act of murdering a large number of people, typically at the same time or over a relatively short period of time. Mass murder may be committed by individuals or organizations.

Mass murder is also defined to be intentional and indiscriminate murder of large number of people by government agents.

Examples are shooting of unarmed protestors, carpet bombing of cities, lobbying of grenades into prison cells and random execution of civilians.

The term may refer to spree killers, who stage a single assault on their victims.

The largest mass killings in history have been attempts to exterminate entire groups or communities of people, often on the basis of ethnicity or religion. Some of these mass murders have been found to be genocides and others to be crimes against humanity, but often such crimes have led to few or no convictions of any type.
