Times have become really hard in terms of security situation in various parts of the world. It will not be wrong to say that with the ever increasing terrorist activity, crimes like mugging, theft, robbery, street killings, murders etc. have also risen. One cannot be really safe in almost any part of the world and this can be said without any exaggeration. Here, we present you all with a list of Top 10 Most Dangerous Cities In The World 2020 to inform you and make you aware of what to expect in each one while travelling or staying there.
10) San Pedro, Sula, Honduras
San Pedro Sula in Honduras is one of the most dangerous cities of the world in 2016 and the reason is that there is one crime which is not stopping there since a very long time. The crime is street killings and murders on the whole. This city is even famously called “the murder capital of the world” owing to the terrible safety situation. The political instability in Honduras and particularly in this city has given rise to many problems like these too.
9) Caracas, Venezuela
That one city which faces serious trouble in terms of illegal drug activity is Caracas in Venezuela. The problems of the city do not just stop here as due to these illegal drug activities, there has been an ever increasing level of corruption. Big business giants are involved in the illegal drug trafficking which makes them go to all kinds of extents to make sure their illegal motives are achieved if you are in Caracas, you need to beware of these drug lords and the security situation on the whole.
8) Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
It turns out that the party hub of the world, Rio de Janeiro in Brazil is not so much fun and games after all. This can be said owing to the fact that there is some serious lapse in the city’s organizational development in terms of safety and security of citizens as well as residents. Street theft is the most common there and tourists need to be especially careful while roaming around in Rio de Janeiro as one cannot be too sure with the smart gadgets in the city. Pick pocketing is also very common and again, tourists are the biggest victims of it.
7) St Louis, USA
St Louis is predominantly a black majority city in USA. The problem that this city faces is that there is a serious kind of disparity between the rich and the poor making the poor feel even more underprivileged. This means that street crimes here too are on a high and even rape cases have happened. Minor exchange of gunfire is also present in the history of this city making it surely one of the most dangerous cities in the world.
6) Ciudad Juarez, Mexico
The safety situation in Ciudad Juarez in Mexico is not very good either and the problem does not seem to be solving any time very soon in the future. The reason for this is that the police itself are often involved in the illegal transportation of drugs from one place to another. Other crimes like human trafficking are also prevalent in the region making this city a highly unsafe zone for many travelling over there. The otherwise extremely hospitable city faces the serious problem of safety and it needs to be dealt with iron hand.
5) Baghdad, Iraq
This once beautiful and popular tourist destination now faces the stain of being one of the most dangerous cities in 2016 and the reason is that the city has been very adversely affected by the war and American invasion in the country. Many criminal and terrorist organizations have started in the city which operate in a deadly manner. There is a long way for this city to go back to its old days but it still remains a famous destination amongst religious tourists and adventure seekers.
4) Karachi, Pakistan
According to many public forums and stats being presented in the year 2016, Karachi in Pakistan has become one of the most dangerous cities of the world. The reason is the ever increasing gang wars, political rivalries, criminal activities and target killing which has basically resulted from various migrants and locals participating in terrorist activities and being a part of terrorist organization. The city of lights has a rich cultural flavor to it but the crime in the city remains a huge problem.
3) Delhi, India
That one city which is particularly unsafe for women on top of being unsafe otherwise is Delhi. It has become the rape capital in the world owing to so many rape incidents happening over there, one of the most famous being the one which happened inside a bus in 2012 and a young girl was brutally raped. The Indian government really needs to tackle this issue as soon as possible as it is unsafe for even locals to live at peace in the city.
2) Kabul, Afghanistan
Kabul once in its full glory was one of the most beautiful and fun cities but ever since the red army walked in and America began its war on terror in the country, Kabul really has never been able to attain that glory back, there are Taliban organization which operate from Kabul and the Government does not have much hold over them. Kabul is undoubtedly one of the most unsafe places this year and at least for some years to come.
1) Damascus, Syria
Ever since ISIS started its operations from the country owing to their pro Sunni extremist stance, Damascus has never been the same making it a very dangerous country in this year. Bombings and killings have become a routine and many Syrian locals have even fled from the city. The situation does not seem to be coming to a rest any time soon and the plight of the locals is a hard battle between the good and the bad,
