Answer is A.
Only two points of difference.
One, use of 'but' to show the contrast between what is happening in Middle East and the rest of the world.
Two, use of 'it's' instead of possessive 'its' with but to mark the contrast from first clause to second clause.

The word it's is always short for 'it is' hence IMHO (B)

While people in the Middle East have good reason to feel gravely threatened by terrorism, elsewhere in the world, it’s more that people are paying greater attention to the terrorist threat than they used to.

But , elsewhere in options (A) & (C) appears redundent, further option (D) its has not antecedent , hence correct Answer must be (B)
