Which is the most dangerous continent to live in?
Some cities are more dangerous than others, that’s a fact – but which cities have the highest murder rate in the world?
If you are relatively unlikely to be murdered in London where the homicide rate is at 1.3 per 100,000 inhabitants in 2011, the figures for Latin America are slightly scarier.
According to data from the UN Office on Drugs and Crime, the murder rate in Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras, reached 102.2 per 100,000 inhabitants in 2011, making it the most violent city in the world. Its residents are nearly 150 times as likely to be murdered as those of Auckland.
