Abstract: In this paper, we evoke first the ubiquity and the importance of the so-called 'nonfictional narrative' information, with a particular emphasis on the terrorism- and crime-related data. We show that the usual knowledge representation and 'ontological' techniques have difficulties in finding complete solutions for representing and using this type of information. We supply then some details about NKRL, a representation and inferencing environment especially created for an 'intelligent' exploitation of narrative information. We will also supply some examples concerning a “terrorism in Southern Philippines” general context to illustrate our approach.
