6 Most Dangerous Cities in the World
Not all cities in the world are built equally and there are certain cities, even in the most powerful and developed countries, where the crime rate is extremely high. You might think of America as a safe place to live, but you wouldn’t want to go to Detroit because the crime rate is extremely high. Same is the case with several other cities across the globe. Here is a list of cities where you wouldn’t want to stay because they are extremely dangerous.
Ciudad Juarez, Mexico
Ciudad Juarez is located right at the border of Mexico. This city has the highest murder rate in the world. In 2009 almost 2600 people were killed only due to drug-related violence. The powerful drug cartels have become so strong that even the army can’t take them down. This is the reason why no law enforcing agency dares to step into the city.
Back in 1991, there was a Somali Civil War and since then there has been absolutely no government control in the capital city of Somalia. This city is considered to be the most lawless part area of the world.
Guatemala City, Guatemala
This city is one of the most volatile areas in the Western Hemisphere. There is high level of drug violence and the political and legal institutions are less adequate. Every visitor is requested not to travel by public transport. Moreover, they are also requested not to appear lost.
Detroit, United States
This city is considered to be one of the most dangerous cities in America. The so called “Motor City” averages almost 1220 violent crimes per 100,000 residents. That is the reason why the American police and army has always the area covered so that less crimes are committed.
To the people of this city and country, blood of other people does not come as a surprise. Back in 2008, Baghdad was considered to be the most dangerous city in the world. Since Saddam’s execution, things went from bad to worse. However, after 2012 Baghdad is relatively improving as compared to before.
