World's Five Most Dangerous Cities

By dorotix, October 14th 2009, Comments (276)

The crime statistics of world's five most dangerous cities are disheartening and shocking. With such high rates of homicide, robberies and violence these cities deservedly bear the names of 'the places of chaos and death' or 'the murder capitals of the world'. Despite the scary data, some of them still remain wanted tourist destinations, though extreme caution is strongly advised when visiting.

 

5. Cape Town. South Africa.

62 killings per 100 000 residents

Cape Town. By Hubert January

Crime has been a major problem in South Africa (both for locals and travelers) for many years now, and the murder and robbery statistics loom large in today's society.
The "good" news is that the number of killings declined by 3.4% to around 18 000 (sic!) between April 2008 and March 2009. Still there are 50 murders a day in South Africa. The latest data shows that there have been 71,500 sexual offenses (10% increase), 18,400 burglaries (27% increase), and 13,900 business robberies (41% increase) reported from April 2008 to March 2009. If it's any consolation, the street robbery declined by 7% to 72,194.

Cape Town by night. By derekkeats

The beautifully located Cape Town is among the most dangerous towns in the country due to its high level of robberies, rapes, kidnappings and murders. The city is about the same size as Caracas and it has a murder rate of 62 per 100,000 inhabitants. According to the police, the homicides usually occur in the poorer districts and suburbs of the town rather than in upscale areas. Due to the poverty (the country has been facing a deep recession) the robberies are common. Therefore, traveling alone and using ATM's at night is not advised.

 

4. New Orleans. The USA. 

95 killings per 100 000 residents

New Orleans, French Quarter. By ohad*

The homicide rate in New Orleans ranks way above other American cities and towns, and therefore the city has been named the murder capital of the USA. The total number of murders equaled 179 in 2008 in this small city of around 300,000 residents. Nevertheless, there have been 15% fewer killings in 2008 than in 2007 when the police reported 210 murders. Also other crime rates are dropping in the town. Rape went down by 44% and armed robbery 4.85% in 2008 in comparison to 2007.

Still, according to the FBI data there have been 95 homicides per 100,000 residents in 2008. In turn New Orleans Police Department reported 67 murders per 100,000 in 2008. A scary comparison has recently been made by the Time magazine stating that Baghdad in Iraq with its murder rate of about 48 per 100,000 people is now being safer, considering the statistics, than New Orleans.
Violent crime is a serious problem especially in the low-income neighborhoods of the town. Lonely Planet advises travelers to New Orleans to be cautious and avoid walks at night, especially if you are alone.

 

3. Caracas. Venezuela.

130 killings per 100 000 residents

Caracas. By Luiz Felipe Castro

Another unsafe destination among world's most dangerous cities is Caracas, the capital of Venezuela.
At the end of 2008 the Foreign Policy magazine called the city "the murder capital of the world". According to the official statistics there have been 130 homicides per 100,000 residents in 2008. Only in December 2008 there were at least 510 people killed in the capital, as CNN reported.

Caracas. By Gidsicki

The problems of Caracas are not only drug trade and gang battles, but also increasing poverty of the city inhabited by around 4 million people. Murders mainly take place in the capital's poorest areas - between 1970s and 1990s the poverty rate increased by 300% to 65%. Although during the oil boom the economic situation improved, the poverty level remains very high.

Moreover, experts underline that the murder ratio has increased by 67% since President Chavez took control over the country. There is police abuse, no gun control, and no good control over the militias, as various media report.

 

2. Ciudad Juárez. Mexico

130 killings per 100 000 residents

Also Mexico, one of the world's greatest travel destinations thanks to its fascinating history and stunning natural sites, is, unfortunately, facing a serious problem of robbery, kidnapping, sexual assault and drug-related crimes.
Among worst affected areas in the country is the Chihuahua state and, above all, Ciudad Juárez. The city located across the U.S and Mexican border, home to 1.5 million people, has recently got a very bad reputation due to its shocking rates of violence. Bloody and violent fighting between the drug cartels have spread across the town, posing a serious threat to locals and travelers.

Ciudad Juarez. By scazon

Since January 2007 there have been 8330 drug-related murders reported in Mexico, of which 50% accounted for Ciudad Juárez. The city reports 130 murders per 100,000 inhabitants (as of August 2009), which is currently the world's highest murder rate ( outside the official war zone). In February 2009 the U.S. State Department announced that since January 2008 there had been 1,800 people killed in the city.

 

1. Mogadishu. Somalia. 

No data

Displaced people fleeing from Mogadishu. By Abdurrahman Warsameh/ ISN Security Watch

The governments' warnings about traveling to Somalia are unanimous: this African country remains extremely dangerous and there is an enormous risk to anyone's security due to the threat of terrorism, clan-based and ethnic fighting as well as high level of kidnapping and piracy off the coast.

Mogadishu. By ctsnow

The epicenter of these brutal crimes and cruelty is Mogadishu, Somalia's capital. The city has been devastated by the ongoing civil war. As of 2008, around half of the city's population (0.5 million) have left the war-torn capital, according to the United Nations. Dozens of people are wounded every day in Mogadishu, and frequent bombings kill many of civilians. No one really knows how many people have been killed in the city, but without dispute Mogadishu remains the most lawless and dangerous city in the world. This is how BBC describes the everyday scenes in Mogadishu: "The crump of mortars; the crackle of gunfire; eerily empty streets; prowling guerrillas and looters; sprawling refugee camps; hospitals overflowing with casualties, their bodies smashed open by bullets, shells and shrapnel...". 

Since the overthrowing of President Siad Barre in 1991 one million people have lost lives in Somalia due to the civil war and famine.

    I was just writing an article about this as I saw it on your twitter, Isn't papua new guinea supposed to be pretty dangerous?

  2. angel Oct 31, 2009 10:30 PM

    MMM.. My City...New Orleans is that bad?

  3. Jim Nov 3, 2009 8:42 PM

    I still think Cuidad Juarez is the worst. In July 2009 there was 248 murders. In August there were 326 deaths.

  4. Gaz Nov 4, 2009 8:56 AM

    I think Birmingham in the U.K is just as dangerous because all the Somalians seem to be moving here!

  5. checho Nov 4, 2009 4:35 PM

    idk about the rest of the cities i dont investigate or nothing but i live in juarez and at least once a week i pass by a murder scene there was over 300 murders last month and this month november 4 has 20 so far

  7. K Nov 5, 2009 10:48 PM

  8. a Nov 11, 2009 3:11 AM

    im surprised detroit michigan is not on here

  9. TheOne Nov 11, 2009 3:50 AM

    I would go to all these cities except for mogadishu just because it looks real ugly and dirty like nothing to offer as a travel destination all the other cities seems pretty decent looking cape town looks like a beautiful city and of course new orleans for mardi gras and juarez is alrite lots of nite clubs there and hot looking gurls been there over 20 times its interesting and has a lot to offer and i bet caracas does as well.

  10. sniper Nov 11, 2009 1:15 PM

    somalia used to be a beautifull destination wit the most beautiful beaches and really nice people...but thanks to the warlords and gangs that run the place its a dangerous place to go.....i heard there is a kidnap there every 30 mins .....i think the world needs 2 open its eyes instead of wasteing time on britney spears everyday.....its a sad world we living in.....

  11. lover Nov 11, 2009 10:39 PM

    i love to travel internationally but i agree with sniper.....everyone worries about the lives of celebrities while people all around the world are getting killed and raped and all.

  12. simon Nov 13, 2009 4:26 AM

    i think hackney east london is bad wat with all the drugs and violence and killings

  13. james Nov 15, 2009 8:31 AM

    Compton,CA gets no love here.

  14. Dave Nov 15, 2009 7:17 PM

    Juarez has the potential to be a great city. The things that I see wrong there is that there is two classes of people poor and rich. No middle class it causes the peter pan effect. It takes one person to lead people to live in a fantasy land. To live a life of drug dealing. Maybe we should think of legalization of marijuana. People say it's the gateway drug, maybe its the gateway to a diffrent approach of controlling illegal drugs. Heroin is growing to be a huge problem. Maybe the tax we would make off Marijuana could go to help those struggling with people with addiction problems. I grew up in El Paso and I think we should not forget about the woman being killed. Juarez I hope UN arrives to ease tensions.

  15. chief Nov 17, 2009 4:27 AM

    some areas of Liverpool totally not safe at night

  16. Pain Nov 17, 2009 9:34 AM

    Durban in South Africa has some of the world's most ruthless criminals, they strip you naked in broad daylight and the people just laugh and cheer on!

  23. SA Nov 20, 2009 9:12 AM

    cape town.. just about every person in my class carrys a knife on them and the teachers know it, but its definetly not banned at skool, its protection

  24. RealSA'can Nov 20, 2009 2:21 PM

    @SA stop lying. Cape Town is overrated in terms of crime. The crime is restricted to places people with computers don't live, so I doubt you carry a knife to school.

  25. Greg Nov 20, 2009 4:04 PM

    It's funny how poeple actually want to show off about how "dangerous" their city or town is. As though this makes their life more exciting and adventerous.

  26. MashTown D-Man Nov 21, 2009 1:56 AM

  29. Survivor Nov 22, 2009 5:13 PM

    I live in EL Paso Tx.... one of the top safest cities in the U.S. connected across the border is on of the top cities in the world for being dangerous. Everyday is an adventure!

  30. Holly Nov 24, 2009 3:58 PM

    This is in responce to 'the one' you seem very small minded. You refered to Somalia as "dirty" and ugly well daaah wouldnt it be when its been in civil war for the past 20 odd years, no law and order.

  31. o.o Nov 24, 2009 9:06 PM

    my family lives in juarez,,, I do not go to visit, this is not the city I left, I live in Dallas, has been 3 years since i seen my parents.

  32. DEG8 Nov 26, 2009 5:29 PM

    I DONT KNOW ABOUT DANGEROUS CITIES. BUT IM 32 & LIVED ALL DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE WORLD & KNOW THAT THE HUMAN NATURE AINT AS KIND AS IT USED TO BE

  33. Sid Da Kid Nov 26, 2009 6:44 PM

    Well I lived in India and it was the safest place I ever lived in!!! I always felt safe there. Well now I live in New York and kinda afraid to go out in the nights because I always feel that some racist noob will shoot me!! It happens a lot in New York!! But at least i am in the safest area of Long Island so I am pretty safe though!!

  34. Leier_SA Nov 27, 2009 2:14 AM

    I've met a girl form Caracas on the internet and we're meeting up in my home town, Cape Town, in December. Should make for some interesting comparitive studies. Also, I currently work in Luanda, Angola where carrying an AK-47 in the open is more common than not. My opinion is that any city with high poverty will have high crime... ie... high population + high poverty = violent crime.

    no:1 must be johannesburg. i'm a policeofficer here and believe me, we've got the worst criminals. they'll rape and kill any foreign mafia gang before you can say "holy shit"

  43. Thaiberian Dec 7, 2009 4:12 AM

    @Francois

    I'm a Spanish guy living in Bangkok, Thailand for one year now.

    I traveled to many countries and I can tell you that Thailand is very very safe.

    Thais are very friendly and tourists ("Falangs" ) :) are highly respected.

  44. Gabriel Dec 7, 2009 4:17 AM

    Caracas is way worse than how is even portrayed in here. The actual killing rates are higher, a lot of those killings are not even reported due to the places where they take place. Also the government censures a lot of media reporting in this topic to not draw international attention. There are tons of kidnapping and people literally disappear every day in Caracas. Its really sad to know that the situation is out of control and its only getting worse.

  45. Possum415 Dec 7, 2009 10:05 PM

    San Francisco is my town, and its amazingly safe. Yes, there are the odd killings in the Bayview/Hunter's Point areas, and definitely some drug killings across the Bay Bridge in Oakland, but you can roam the streets in 99% of SF in the middle of the night, and you'll be just fine. This is largely a wealthy city, so I suspect that is why you're safe.

  46. I AM DANGER! Dec 8, 2009 1:54 PM

    Just writing to say, London is the most dangerous. come to plashet road, forest gate , say your prayers before you enter!

    Annonymous.

  47. Xx415xX Dec 8, 2009 7:18 PM

    Possum415, i have to disagree with you. you obviously live in the marina district. what about Hunters point(as you mentioned), mission district, and the tenderloin? you try walking there in the middle of the night

  48. your mother Dec 8, 2009 8:17 PM

    there is no safe place we are all doomed whereever u are if ur reading this the world is ending soon run hide tell your mother fathers brothers we will al be run over by the somli pirates the taliban the tamil tigers the bloods the crip ali-queda hide run................... before this message ends i might be gone oh no..... hes hereee nooooo

    Thailand has sold her soul and openly spreads her legs for anyone with money.

  50. Dante Dec 11, 2009 12:02 AM

    I live in Juarez, and I guess I'm proud to say that I'm alive. Now I can show off saying that I live in the world's most dangerous city. I go to other states and if I don't like somebody I just say I'm from Cd. Juarez, and they get all scared. In addition, I'm a boxer, so they should be affraid.
    P.S. after hearing and seing so many deaths, you get used to, and It doesn't scare you anymore (doesn't mean you are safe)

  51. Road to hell Dec 11, 2009 4:26 AM

    Xx415xX: I used to live in the tenderloin it's really not that bad. The mission is ok too I've walked there after midnight many times, but Hunter's point hell no I would not roam there at night.

  52. Punkchic Dec 12, 2009 12:27 PM

    Juarez is creepy 15 just got killed yesterday or the other day. itz sad but not surprising.

  53. Mexicano de Guerra Dec 12, 2009 10:52 PM

    Tijuana has just as bad crime, 12 cut off heads where found in a dumpster. Kidnappings happen all the time, I have a friend from there who hasn't seen his family in months cause they where kidnapped. I'm from Lazaro Cardenas Michoacan, come visit, it's pretty safe, it got a bit violent recently cause they arrested the head of La Familia Michoacan, but he escaped so it's okay now.

  54. Sunshineman Dec 16, 2009 10:30 AM

    Ain't no love for Scottsdale, it is brutal here. You get a new BMW and your neighbor buys the same one...it is hard livin here in the "dale"..Straight outta Scottsdale!!!"

  55. Gari Dec 16, 2009 5:36 PM

    I live in a ex communism country and all i can say i'm happy about it . in my town with 80 000 residents there are almoust 0 percent of chance that you are going to get robbed or killed on the street. actually i never heard that anyone has been robbed on the street in my town, ever. communism is bad but it sure has some positive sides.

  56. reporter C Dec 16, 2009 6:13 PM

    I have been to Mogadishu us a really bad place to live three people died in my face one year ago when i was trying to check the city. Don't even think about going there.

    Elizabeth New Jersey is not a paradise of happiness also people die a lot of times there.

  58. reporter c Dec 16, 2009 6:20 PM

    El Salvador is not the best place in the world but in 1988 something it was the most dangerous country in the world.

  59. Juarez resident Dec 17, 2009 6:34 PM

    I live in ciudad juarez, and its very sad to see my city as number two in this list...but its true, a friend of mine just got shot the other day, we get about 10 killings a day, no joke, VERY sad and no one does anything about it.

  60. Mark III Dec 18, 2009 8:24 AM

    India is any day safer than any country in this world. Of course does not have any beautiful places as such but its a pretty safe place to live.

  61. Gari Dec 18, 2009 3:04 PM

    Lol on what drugs are you Mark III , India is not safe place , actually its one of the most dangerous countries in the world.

  62. Wonder Dec 22, 2009 8:52 AM

  64. Juaritoss Dec 22, 2009 10:38 PM

    I'm just sad because Juarez isn't number one just like Juan Gabriel's song...I know we can do better...or worse for that matter...

    I stopped loving Mexico a long long time ago; A few more months and all my family is going to get the hell out of that cr@p hole, which I like to call Bumblefu*k, and move to El Paso which I also like to call Bumblefu*k....Oh well...

  67. Kuncit Dec 27, 2009 1:37 PM

    Kuala Lumpur is by far one of the safest place to visit. But don't be stupid, always be aware of of anyone suspicious because crime are always committed by other foreigners from neighbouring countries.

  68. Kuncit Dec 27, 2009 1:44 PM

    Only a very lazy Malaysians who live in Kuala Lumpur are willing to commit crime here. We have plenty of jobs to offer and as long as you're willing to work you will not starve to dead in KL.Of course there are people who want fast money so be aware of these people. They normally start to do sweet talk to you but they have bad intention.Onle trust a uniform policemen whenever ask for direction.Never talk to Negoes lingering in the street of KL.

  69. Heaterbeater Dec 28, 2009 1:08 AM

    I live in Portland, Oregon and it is pretty nice here people are pretty friendly but its the bad drivers and drunks that will crash into you and kill you here. People here don't work they get bored and depressed and drink and drive.

  70. Craig Dec 28, 2009 8:56 AM

    Greetings from South Africa -

    Actually Johannesburg and not Cape Town is the most dangerous city in South Africa.
    Cape Town is a lovely citty.

  71. aryan Dec 28, 2009 3:15 PM

    isnt like kabul probably the most dangerous atm or baghdad ? becuase of al qaeda and everything

  72. Criszaor001 Dec 28, 2009 5:46 PM

    ermm.. sorry to disagree with you all but... the world's most dangerosu city by far is MEDELLIN COLOMBIA! Everyday you hear at least 10 to 15 murders, plus the ones that are not published. Eventhough the city is cool and somewhat safe, there are many gang related crimes every day, not to say every hour. there are some places known as comunas, in which paramilitar and guerrilla irregular forces fight for their territories in a drug related carnage. THAT is hell!

  73. kiguito Dec 29, 2009 2:27 AM

    I'm living in Maputo, Mozambique...what a nice place to live....come and run away from all those unsafe places in the world

  74. Dookey: Australia Dec 29, 2009 7:15 AM

    What a sad affair to think that humankind has allowed our world to be morally emaciated, with such lawlessness and depravity. I am deeply saddened to think that such places have gone to ruination, and feel for those innocent and suppressed people who live in daily fear. It is a sad affair when ones homeland becomes ones enemy. Peace to the world is what I prayer.

    Hey guys... these numbers and statistics are way too terrible... So, lets do something to change it guys... I was looking for some numbers thinking that Brazil was one of the most dangerous place, however, i've found that it could be worse... Even living in Australia at the moment im always feeling unsafe!

  83. Realist Jan 3, 2010 9:47 PM

    somalians are the root of all evil. prove me wrong. pirates, war lords, and mobsters. perhaps the most heartless and ruthless people to walk this planet...they stain a beautiful religion like Islam.

  84. Mack Jan 4, 2010 6:39 AM

    Very informative post. Here World’s Most Dreadful Destinations. If your travel agent suggest you for this place than dont go. Dreadful Destinations such as Africa's Rwanda, Somalia, Sierra Leone, Afghanistan's Kabul, US drops bombs regularly on Iraq, People are holding gun on the streets, even dont go in Chechnya, North Korea it is not a place worth visiting, Cambodia is also dangorous place for tourist, Sri Lanka, Macedonia, United States.

  85. Caracas Jan 4, 2010 3:03 PM

    I live in Caracas, I don't know it's place in the ranking but I do know that people are getting killed and kidnapped every single day, on the weekends it's crazy!
    You have a cellphone and you get killed for it if you're not careful. If you go out at night you better be looking over your shoulder. Now there are a lot of "comando" thefts taking place, where a group of armed people raid a WHOLE FREKIN building... it's so sad...
    Venezuela is a hell hole, and getting worse

  86. Colombia Jan 4, 2010 9:25 PM

    I'm from Colombia, a country that used to lead unsafe place rankings a few years back. Now it's pretty much safer but for jungle areas and slums nobody sane would think of visiting. Sorry for those places in the article, we colombians know what it feels. But don't worry: the world changes...

    Where did Somalia go wrong? I mean they were already messed before America came in. Just where did they go wrong? I have friends that are Muslim, and I know that Islam is a beautiful religion (personally, I'm considering converting). But I just don't get how these people could be so malicious and pretend to follow this religion. Not to be rude, but I take the bus everyday and the Somalians aren't exactly the nicest people (the young ones especially).

    I lived in Venezuela back in the 80's and 90's when it used to be a paradise. Nowadays, crime, poverty and corruption are out of control. The #1 person responsible for this tragedy is the president of Vzla. Hugo Chavez - the dictator.

    I think that all in Juarez live in fear, everyday is a fear go out of our house, daily there are deaths by the cartel or thieves, also the thieves kill you if you don't give them your car or if you don't give them money for your business, office, etcetera to let ypu work. These is daily.
