Surprisingly, not many American cities made this list (although a ton of them could top it). We dug deep into statistics and numbers, and, have now come up with our take for the five deadliest cities in the world. These numbers were gathered in partnership with police forces from around the world, particularly, Latin America.
[They also appeared in 24/7 Wall Street, although, we independently verified each statistic with each country’s police agency].
- Caracas, Venezuela; homicides per 100,000: 130.35
- Acapulco, Mexico; 113.24
- San Pedro Sula, Honduras; 112.09
- Distrito Central, Honduras; 85.09
- Victoria, Mexico; 84.67
