The Top 10 Most Dangerous Cities In The World

Based on a report released by the Citizens’ Council for Public Security and Criminal Justice, the article lists the top 10 most dangerous cities in the world that have the highest homicide rates per 100,000 inhabitants. They are as follows:

  1. Celaya, Mexico – 109.39 Homicides/100K
  2. Tijuana, Mexico – 105.15 Homicides/100K
  3. Ciudad Juarez, Mexico – 103.61 Homicides/100K
  4. Ciudad Obregon, Mexico – 101.13 Homicides/100K
  5. Irapuato, Mexico – 94.99 Homicides/100K
  6. Ensenada, Mexico – 90.58 Homicides/100K
  7. St. Louis, United States – 87.83 Homicides/100K
  8. Uruapan, Mexico – 72.59 Homicides/100K
  9. Fiera De Santana, Brazil – 67.46 Homicides/100K
  10. Cape Town, South Africa – 64 Homicides/100K

I cannot believe that Mexico is this dangerous. 7 of the most dangerous cities out of the top 10 are from Mexico? Maybe I or 2 at the most is what I would have expected and I did think that maybe places in Columbia would be on the list. None from Asia, I see. This list was compiled on December 3rd, 2021 so it is very recent.

One thought on “The Top 10 Most Dangerous Cities In The World

  1. These lists are based on murder rates, which are very high in Mexico. But nearly all these murders take place among drug traffickers. If you are not in the illegal drug business, your chances of being robbed, killed, etc. in Mexico are pretty low. I wish they would do a “tourist danger index” which would measure the actual risk to normal visitors. I’m sure it would look very different from this list.
