Most Dangerous Countries In the World

The Top Ten
1 Somalia

A few months ago was listening on the radio to a BBC foreign correspondent who was reporting on his recent visit to Somalia. Surprisingly he found much of the country was apparently quite orderly, and he remarked that he had been to other places in his career which he found much less safe and much more dangerous, such as parts of Nigeria and parts of Mexico.

Well part of the reason Somalis have turned to the high seas for resources is because their country has been completely and repeatedly torn apart by war, famine and unrest.
this poor country is just another country killed and manipulated by America, at least its improving a bit over time.
Just a country left behind and never saved.

No government and full anarchy, terrorism is extremely abundant in this vulnerable country and poverty is extremely high. Somalia is the North Korea of Africa, except the only thing that makes Somalia more dangerous is that North Korea has a government.

There is no law in Somalia. Pirates on the coast, corrupt so-called government and civil war on the inside. It a country full of bandits and people ready to shoot you and steal everything you have. Let's not forget the terrorist attacks.

2 Iraq Iraq, officially the Republic of Iraq, is a country in Western Asia. ...read more.

Ever since the 2003 invasion of Iraq, there has been many terrorist attacks. You should not visit Iraq as it has one of the highest risks of terrorism. If you want to visit Iraq, I prefer you visit Iraqi Kurdistan because there is way less terror attacks and corruption in Iraqi Kurdistan

You are taking a nice walk along the desert when you suddenly hear "Allahu Akbar" and gunfire. You try to escape and soon enough, the terrorists, led by a vicious warlord, take you to an underground cave for endless torture and death. You've just crossed the Iraq border.

Uh, **cough cough** third world country. And how in the world, is the U.S. most dangerous? I mean, our government might not be best as of now, but were not so incosiderate that we just would nuke a country. I, being a 13 year old male American Minor, know were not some dirty pigs that take everything and do bad stuff. Way to be positive, people.

It is so dangerous because people living there risk their lives and their average life spam is about 30-40 and they lack access to clean water food and other kinds of materials to survive. They also get killed in different kind of reasons that don't actually have to be killed

3 Syria Syria, officially the Syrian Arab Republic, is a country in Western Asia. Syria has been involved in a civil war since 2011.

Syrian people are nice, friendly and hospitable. However Syria has been fighting a brutal civil war and many terrorists occupy parts of Syria.

I am so saddened by what has happened in Syria (and Iraq and Libya) and also being British I regret the part that our country has played in all this. Just as we were all told that "regime change" was what was needed in Iraq and Libya, we are now same in regard to Syria. IF we could just get rid of Saddam Hussein in Iraq and Colonel Gaddafi in Libya, then all would be sweetness and light in those countries and they would soon become beacons of peace and democracy, or so we were told. Well, we have all seen what has happened in those countries following "regime change". And yet many politicians in the U.K and other countries still stick to the line that all we need in Syria is "regime change" to get rid of President Assad. Yeah right - they are away with the fairies if they think we are going to swallow this bunkum for a third time.

Bashar al-Assad is bombing, gassing, striking and attacking civilian villages and killing hundreds of innocent bystanders. The ongoing conflict known as the Syrian Civil War is truly sad to see, especially with the photos of burned kids in Aleppo and people dying in the streets for no good reason. I know world leaders are trying very hard to end the war, but it isn't ending any time soon. So, this is why I ask you, WHY IS SYRIA NUMBER 4? Nothing is really going on in Iraq recently, the same said for Somalia and Afghanistan. I'm just saying, this low?

The regime is shelling cities using mortars, bombs, tanks, helicopters and jet fighters! Scud missiles are used too to hit civilians, needless to remind you of the chemical weapons which have been used too! The regime is fighting rebels inside and outside cities.. No where to run! Now what do you think? What country is the most dangerous in the world?

4 Afghanistan Afghanistan, officially the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, is a landlocked country located within South Asia and Central Asia.

Taliban and Al Qaeda form this country into a war-torn dangerous country when you get hear a fire of a gun in your sleep and get kidnapped in your sleep.

Land mines, malaria, lack of government, lack of resources, extreme poverty, famished, malnutrition, illnesses, drugs and religous radicals known as the Taliban make this country by far the worst place on Earth to live. Don't underestimate any of those I've listed, research will show you each one is the worst in it's class. Afghanistan leads the world in malaria cases, active land mines, and poverty. Their number one crop is opium! Americans will pay out a federal salary to local nationals to earn hard cheddar by performing hard labor, digging ditches in 120+summers all day should be worth more than a handsome $7! That's right, apparently making 7 US dollars is well worth a hard days sun!

Yes even though it's my birth country and where I was from, I agree it's dangerous, that's why I moved to Australia here, it's peaceful and beautiful but I do miss all those delicious fruits and the land itself. My Uncle, aunties, cousins and grandparents live there and I sorrowly miss them. It's been nearly 4 years now since I came to Australia, I came to Australia when I was 6, I now am 10. My parents are thinking of going to Afghanistan for a holiday to visit out family members but I personally am scared and don't think it's safe. We haven't visited Afghanistan since we came here and I do want to visit it badly but apparently on the other hand, I'm terrified.

Many afghans are nice people and very friendly. This doesn’t mean it’s safe, because terror groups occupy large parts of Afghanistan.

5 North Korea The Democratic People's Republic of Korea, also known as North Korea, is a country in Eastern Asia. Its capital is Pyongyang. It is currently ruled by the dictator Kim Jong-Un, after inheriting the title from his father, Kim Jong-Il, who in turn inherited it from his father, Kim Il-Sung. ...read more.

It is the current most evil country. It forces its citizens to believe that North Korea is a superior country and all the other countries are weak compared to North Korea. If a civilian doesn't believe in what the government says, they will be left to rot in horrific North Korean gulags.

Brainwashed, bad government, NO INTERNET, and Christians, people trying to escape, are put into what's basically a Nazi concentration camp, and people here are poor as dirt.

I was actually surprised at how easy it is to escape North Korea, it's as simple as boarding a flight to Beijing, a non hostile relationship with a communist country, and from there going to another place. The problem is that the people are so brainwashed that they wouldn't know to do that, or that they're living deplorably. The country shouldn't even be called North Korea. South Korea shouldn't be called that either, the south is the only REAL Korea. The North shouldn't even be recognized as a country, it's a giant prison. And Shorty needs a bullet through his forehead. Can you get on that, Rodman? Make yourself useful for a change.

It's dangerous because the dictatorship is SO MUCH... like there's no freedom of speech and internet is forbidden. Only the high rank officials can use internet to cover them up. THEY ARE FULL OF LIES! No North Korean people have access to the Internet because the government is concerned that people would see things that would make them feel unfairly critical toward the West, and the government would like to protect the West's reputation by preventing the people from going on the Internet. LIKE! And there are lots and lots and lots and lots of propaganda. They are war freaks in short.

6 Pakistan Pakistan was established in 1947 and is located in South Asia. Islamabad is the capital city of Pakistan. Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar are other major cities of Pakistan. Urdu and English are official languages of Pakistan. World's second highest peak (K-2) and ninth highest peak (Nanga Parbat) are ...read more.

For country which owes its existence to Hatred towards non-Muslims, and for years which reared snakes in its backyard hoping that one day they bite their civilized neighbor, the things are now coming to full circle. It is a confused country which does not been recognize its forefathers, history and culture which was tolerant before they advent of barbarians. What a shame that they believe themselves to be loyal to their country despite hating their roots and ancestry. One thing is sure such a country and its inhabitants are doomed to face the consequences of the hate which they had sowed, unless better sense prevails!

Pakistan is the most dangerous country in the world because in every other dangerous country common people living in that country hate the elements that are dangerous but in this country Pakistan even common people love the elements that make this country dangerous like religious extremists, intelligence agencies,Taliban and leaders that run target killer groups.Every Pakistani loves at least one of these elements from the core of their hearts.You will never observe this phenomenon anywhere else.

Pakistan is CRAP! Who says it is the safest country to live in?! Osama bin Laden was hiding in Abbotabad and no one was knowing! Even the Pakistani government wasn't knowing it! And if it had known then why would it hide the fact? They are liars who are the biggest supporters of terrorism. Can you be safe if you see Osama bin Laden living beside your house? His guards would shoot you. One man less from the world population.

Pakistan is fine it is beautiful all right and is much cleaner than kabul. I have been to Islamabad, lahore, karachi and peshawar and all are much cleaner than Kabul. although I am from Kabul, Afghanistan but I hate to admit that Kabul is not a place to live. specially that local toilet system which is really dangerous and almost 95 percent of Kabul people have H. Pylori and other Urinary Tract Infection which are easily spread form to another.

7 South Sudan South Sudan, officially the Republic of South Sudan, is a landlocked country in northeastern Africa that gained its independence from Sudan in 2011. Its current capital is Juba, which is also its largest city.

South Sudan suffers from Poverty and is one of the most hungry nations in earth. Ever since South Sudanese independence, South Sudan has been full of deadly rebel groups trying to take over the country.

No wonder why it's struggling so much; it's the newest nation in the world, but it's developing backwards. Not developed at all still at war with Sudan

The newest country in the world is very dangerous and one of the least developed countries in the world. Widespread poverty too.

South Sudan is becoming so relentless on civilians, it's on its way to becoming Somalia part 2

8 Israel The State of Israel is a country in the Middle East and the only country with a Jewish majority in the world. Israel is a small country bordering Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, and Egypt and its official languages are Hebrew and Arabic.

GUYS, LISTEN! Just because a nation is strong militarily does not mean their dangerous! Israel is actually surprisingly safe when you take a look at countries such as: Syria, Afghanistan, South Sudan, North Korea, Yemen, Venezuela and many others.

I live in Israel and I see where your coming from but I wold like you to know there are a lot of nice people here so as in every place
but if someone from Israel wold of saved a Muslim's life that woldent be on the new's and the same for the other way only the death goes around and that make's everything worse including what makes probably 20-40% of ower society raciest as all they here about is the terrorist and not the nice people all though most of them are nice I live right by a town of Muslims and they are very nice really so I think it's the media and government that only spread the bad things around

People why don't you understand that the biggest BULLIES of the world include USA and Israel when you honestly look at their leaders where and whatever they have their eyes on, its all for the wrong purposes. Yeah governments etc everywhere are corrupt but look into context then deny that USA hasnt contributed to putting these middle eastern and Asian countries top. Israel is no exception

This isn't a country. They occupied Palestine. Illegal country... Unfair child of america. They want unrest in Middle East to protect their existence and that's why Middle East is set on fire by usa. Just because Middle East have more Muslim population, they are targeted and stereotyped as terrorists. Nuke this country and world will be a more peaceful and secure

9 Yemen Yemen, officially known as the Republic of Yemen, is an Arab country in Western Asia, occupying the southwestern to the southern end of the Arabian Peninsula.

Yemen is fighting one of the most brutal civil wars in history. The Yemeni government is fighting against Houthis Rebels supported by Iran and Terror Groups. Saudi Arabia is also launching many missiles at Yemen killing many civilians. You should avoid visiting Yemen.

The Poland of the Middle East, it is conquered and invaded all the time now. Let's see who did it the latest, shall we since the President was forced to step down and let the Houthis take charge:
1) Australia and Saudi Arabia (Australia is literally the USSR of the Middle East in terms of sheer military size) - Australia rushed Yemen with 500,000 troops in the beginning of 2015. JAS-39s were literally HAMMERING Yemen's capital day and night. Additionally, Saudi Arabia also got a lot of swipes in at Yemen. However, both suffered heavy lossses, with Australia losing 15 JAS-39s in the first year alone, including one Gripen which was shot down by an Iranian F-14. Saudi Arabia is also losing large numbers.
2) Qatar until they were kicked out of the GCC - Played a small role though.
3) UAE, but they have been far better at it than KSA.

It has loads of wars each year I think sorry if I'm wrong I pretty much only study ice age

In some websites this country reveals as the number 1 most dangerous.

10 Mexico Mexico, officially the United Mexican States, is a federal republic located in North America. The country is located between the U.S. and Central America, and is known for its Pacific and Gulf of Mexico beaches and its diverse landscape of mountains, deserts, and jungles.

That is true this is the worst country ever with the drug cartels and the border to USA this is the worst country I've ever traveled to and the schools are the worst and the property housing those houses are made of cement I hate that and the apartments too! The schools are the worst they tell on guys to shave their hair when its long from preschool til high school that sucks has the worst school systems and the flag with an eagle killing a snake that's the worst flag ever made the USA flag is more beautiful than this one. Politics stealing money killing people Crime, dirty, corrupt and those are adjectives id use to compliment them. Mexico scored a 35, and was ranked as one of the top 75 most corrupt countries in the world. Thank god Donald Trump added this The worst country ever with the baddest economy and education system drug violence and crime killing and worst politics the food is terrible tacos and the Chinese food is even worse in USA is better. This should be number 1 on the ...more

I'd love to travel to Mexico but the thought of it scares the crap out of me, I was reading in the News Paper before, some cartel kidnapped An American man who was just on vacation down there with his wife for a few months. They tortured him, beat him, starved him and demanded his wife to pay a large amount of money if she was to ever see him alive again (I can't remember how much It was, but it was a lot of money) they kept him hostage for 4 months I think. He was only released once his wife had payed all the cash. He is Ok now. But No thank you I wont be travelling there any time soon.

Get this:

I'm Chicano (person of Hispanic trace living in the US) and my parents are from this country. They told his it was like living there and I could tell this country is horrible. I've does research and found out that there has been a drug war since 2006 between cartels and the police and continues to this day. Literally thousands of people die. Even worse, these cartels actually OWN the police by bribing them in the northern states. Yep, Mexico is a terrible place.

I disagree with the fact that Mexico is in 7th. They should be in 3rd due to the deaths caused by the cartels and Mexico is way more dangerous than the usa. Does USA have power gangs or a powerful military. No they don't. Just because Mexico lost in the Mexican American war doesn't mean they are more powerful. Mexico is a fierce country. The USA is no more dangerous than a little doll.

The Contenders
11 Ukraine Ukraine is a sovereign country in Eastern Europe, bordered by Russia to the east and northeast, Belarus to the northwest, Poland and Slovakia to the west, Hungary, Romania, and Moldova to the southwest, and the Black Sea and Sea of Azov to the south and southeast, respectively.

The rest of Ukraine is safe. People really want others to think that the entirety of Ukraine is dangerous just because ONLY the eastern part is at war. Ukraine is not like Syria, Yemen, or Iraq. It's way safer than those 3 countries.

Certainly not safe to fly over. One airliner shot down and another 2 transports almost hit as well. We should definitely close Ukrainian Airspace until the situation there is at least somewhat more safe.

Ukraine has started becoming terrible with what they did to the Malaysian flight.
The skinheads there do not let blacks live and do lots of stuff like tearing your body and getting your organs out and kill you. Plus you have also got Russia as a neighbouring country and it always keeps having wars

Only Eastern Ukraine and Chernobyl are dangerous. Just because a portion of the country is dangerous doesn't mean the entire country is dangerous. The rest of Ukraine is safe, just don't go to Chernobyl and the eastern part.

12 Venezuela Venezuela, officially the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, is a federal republic located on the northern coast of South America.

Venezuela is defined the most dangerous countries in the americas. There is gang violence and bloody protests all around the countries. Venezuela is also very poor and many Venezuelans are starving. Venezuela is also a corrupt country and many people are suppressed.

If you watched the news for the past few months (when it was all over the news), it is pretty dangerous. There is a corrupt government, many street protests in response, crumbling economy (oil prices were getting lower), and (perhaps the worst thing) the inflation there is some of the worst in the world. We talked about the whole crisis during Spanish class this school year (as of 5/6/19). One of my former Spanish teachers is actually FROM Venezuela. When I asked one of my sisters who has her class if they talked about the Venezuela crisis, the said teacher almost cried. This is very understandable because it's her country. I am saddened by what happened and I hope it can do better.

Caracas (Venezuela's capital) has the highest murder rate in the world. Most of my family lives there and they could die of starvation or be murdered by gangs at any moment.

How did USA get ranked more dangerous than Venezuela. Just shows how much people go outside their bubbles and check on reality...

13 South Africa South Africa, officially the Republic of South Africa, is the southernmost sovereign state in Africa. It is bounded on the south by 2,798 kilometers of coastline of Southern Africa stretching along the South Atlantic and Indian Oceans, on the north by the neighbouring countries of Namibia, Botswana ...read more.

I have had every window in my car smashed, I've been mugged, had numerous phones and laptops stolen. And I tend to forget about all this, because it seemed normal, and I blamed myself every time. This just does not happen in many other countries.

Definitely not safe' my father was murdred in a church when he responded to a alarm as he was the sexton of the church. My partners wife was shot dead in the house in front of him and the grandchildren. My late husband was killed by a drunk policeman, and it ceases to amaze me that you never hear any of these murders solved and I'm talking years but that it is chosen to broadcast worldwide the Oscar trail, I wonder if the brave previously disadvantaged think they are scoring points in this world today by televising this case live! They should only be aloud this privledge when they start catching there fellow brothers who are aloud to committ these hanous crimes and roam free! It is sad for Oscar and Sherien Dewani that they will be the cases used to cover up the crimes the previously disadvantaged committ. The rest of the world should look past these two cases and you will see the crimes being committed against whites in this country! No I would not recommend any one invest or visit ...more

It would be better for the white farmers to leave South Africa and let the rest of the population starve to death. The white farmers in South Africa are constantly subjected to violence by the majority black South Africans. This country will be at the mercy of Aid from the United Nations and financial bailouts from the International Monetary Fund, as long the the African National Congress remains in power.

I am South African and I find this very disrespectful. Every country has it's crime, we have a safe life in South Africa you just need to be aware of your surrounding I can walk in the streets at any time of the night or day and I have not once had problems so before you judge a country by its cover get your facts right...

14 Libya Libya, officially the State of Libya, is a country in the Maghreb region of North Africa bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the north, Egypt to the east, Sudan to the southeast, Chad and Niger to the south, and Algeria and Tunisia to the west.

Libya has been fighting a civil war ever since the death of there former leader Gaddafi. There has been many terror attacks and there is so many sides fighting in the conflict.

Some people think USA is worse. Others think Israel is worse. Some think Pakistan is worse. But in reality, all of them are wrong, as Libya practically fell into anarchy in 2011 and is now a lethal battleground.

It's extremely hot there, one place there is hotter than Australian summer (trust me, I'm Australian). And in 2011...

Libya fell into complete Anarchy in 2011. It has to be above 20 at least.

15 United States The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the ...read more.

You know how many countries hate us and the fact we still own China that 1 trillion and the crime is no joke 56000 people die in New York City every year and that's just 1 city there's much more Obama almost went to war with Syria and they have nukes imagine nuclear war it would be terrible that will be so don't think all the time oh America the home of the free it's the home of crime and that crime is influenced to people every day crime is growing and every day I watch the news after work and I hear another another bank robbery another person killed another something that's illegal so USA plus I have to make sure my boy is safe to the walk home intact I even have to pick him up from school now because of sexual assault now a days and don't even about the cancer situation 1 person die from it every day here and drug dealers are crazy in Houston there's thousands of gangsters in the New York the Bronx and lots of asylums in California deserts it's crazy here USA should be the 1# most ...more

The USA is not only dangerous I hate USA people say that it is the best country all over the world I live in Pakistan I know that there is load shedding in Pakistan but behind this reason is USA. USA does not allow Pakistan to produce current USA does allow us to build dams. In Pakistan the summer is too too too much hot on other hand there is load shedding every where but the people are so much tolerant they bear the extreme heat of summer but if the availabilities of electricity gas and water the Americans would die my country is so much charming country and it is the atomic power country Americans drop bombs on us without any reason through their drones USA attacks on whole Muslim countries if we say that Iran Iraq Turkey Pakistan Afghanistan Sudan and Algeria are dangerous countries then it would be wrong the actual dangerous and bad countries are of Europe North America South America including Brazil USA UK Spain Russia and AMERICA and from Asia the bad countries are India and ...more

I live here. There is so much crime it's eye-popping. One time, all I heard when I was going to bed was shooting. This country is so dangerous their trying to put a solution to it but the solutions made it worse. For example, they say it's easier getting kidnapped by yourself than getting kidnapped in a group. That is true; but then you hear about multiple people being kidnapped at once. I always want to go outside but then 10 minutes later I hear gunshots. I have to go back inside. Every day when I wake up, I hear about people missing and people getting kidnapped and murdered. It's ridiculous. The security is pretty bad too. Most securities for your house warn that you've been robbed after it happens. That's pointless. Some other securities prevent it from happening beforehand, yet they are usually very expensive. The United States of America is definitely one of the most dangerous countries in the world.

Why is the US #7? So many people in the US are afraid that someone will kidnap their kids and that school shootings happen at half the schools. Occurrences like these are very very rare and the news just emphasizes them because that's what they are paid to do. I am 15 years old and I have walked around in Harlem many times by myself without even a suspicious glance. This list is awful and our country is "more dangerous" than countries with starvation due to civil wars (South Sudan). We are also #1 in the Americas which means that the US is more dangerous than countries with severe drug trafficking issues like El Salvador and Colombia.

16 Iran Iran, also known as Persia, officially the Islamic Republic of Iran, is a sovereign state in Western Asia. The capital city is Teheran and the major city is also Tehran. The country's official language is Persian. ...read more.

I'm Iranian myself and its true, Iran is somehow dangerous!

Let me describe it! To be honest now days its too hard to trust anyone in Iran cause anyone (even close family members) turn into money whores and scammers!

There is a lot of criminals like drugs, rape, scams and more but all of them are HIDDEN, i mean you will never hear on the news in T.V. that someone got raped, killed, kidnapped or killed on purposed! Expect some newspapers! They might just mention the people that were killed by accident! ( Although some channels that are Persian channels in UK like BBC Persian and manoto are the same as IRIB channels and they don't have balls to talk bout criminals in UK)

The salaries are low for normal people, the prices are doubled without any reason and ofc that will raise criminals!

Freedom of speech is under 0 here, if you just talk, post or do anything against government= R.I. P ( that's why I will not talk about government here cause there is a 90% ...more

Although there are a lot of criminals, The U.S. and other countries have this too, but the main danger is the government. Christians are allowed, but they are under constant pervasive surveillance, and they need to fill out attendance records. The government is also very conservative and strict. Although it is not nearly as bad as Saudi Arabia (They are much worse), the incredibly conservative regime is known for imposing harsh sentences for most crimes. However, if there is one thing I should tell you, they are also very hard on terrorists, and do not allow any groups like that in this country.

Safe and dangerous at the same time. No terrorism though, and our crime rate is much lower than Russia's in a lot of cases. It is not really the criminals you have to worry about here, it's the government. Although they are not as oppressive as many other governments, they are still as bad and strict as the Soviet Union/USSR (which is now defunct). In fact, it is not nearly as oppressive as Russia's modern Federation Government that was adopted after the Soviet Union was disbanded. However, it is still certainly very lacking in many rights.

Iran/Persia is actually one of the safest countries in the world, with absolutely no KIDNAPPERS, whatsoever. Not even TWO kidnappings have occurred there throughout all these years, have you seen? How dare you put Brazil after Iran. This is a disgrace towards the Persians, and you have upset many people around in the USA.

17 Democratic Republic of the Congo The Democratic Republic of the Congo, also known as DR Congo, DRC, DROC, Congo-Kinshasa, or simply the Congo is a country located in Central Africa.

DR Congo is starving and many people there cannot live a healthy life. There are rebels trying to take control of the government and the government is very corrupt.

Congo is a useless ghetto country where corruption and violences goes unpunished. The so-called United Nations are obvious to all of this. I don't feel sorry for the most of the Congolese, because most of them recreate violence overseas and create further problems abroad.

This should be way higher than the USA! This deserves to be in the top 5!

This Country Isn't Really Democratic

18 Russia Russia, known as the "Russian Federation", was formed on Dec 25, 1991. It is located mainly in Asia. The capital and largest city is Moscow, followed by Saint Petersburg in terms of population. The country primarily speaks Russian, a Slavic language.

Russia like the US is dangerous. Russia under Putin is trying to restore their empire ( the bear was never dead, just hibernating ). The US is trying to desperately hold on to its empire. The current poisonous relationship between these two nations will see a miscalculation and when it's over, the remaining nations... England, China, and others may have to pick up the pieces. On the other hand, nobody in the world is safe if both the US and Russia remain hell bent in their current mindset.

If Russia was dangerous, how come I made it through there for 12 years? People seriously need to quit hating on countries because of communism and then call it dangerous.

I don't know what all of you guys are talking about, these countries are not by how much missiles and nukes they have, these are by the crime rates, and wars. From 2008 to 2011 St Petersburg and Moscow had 7,644 murders... I am from russia myself and it is never safe out in the streets, especially at night. Mafia is everywhere, and the whole country is filled with alcoholics and killers. that's why I moved to USA

Russia is not the safest of places, lets face it guys. Even if you don't get killed by an FSB operative you still have to contend with incredibly harsh winters and people who are incredibly bitter about the way the cold war turned out.

19 Honduras

Honduras is not that dangerous, Yes, there are murders as in almost every country, over the years this murder rate has decreased. It isn't the most dangerous place on Earth, how is that even possible with al this wars occuring at the moment? If you come here you obviously won't be murdered just as you enter the country, and there are beautiful places in here and people is nice. I Love my country, flaws and all, and stop throwing negativity towards it please

Hounduras is my home country and I can tell you it hasnt been like this before but now it is you can't even have a tattoo or police will kill you and theifs would take your gold earrings saying "pain or no pain" which means if u say pain he takes it of with your ear and no pain he will take it off like u normally would

How is this so low it has by far the highest murder totals on earth and it's not even that populated that takes skill and putting this below the us (which has plenty of crime) is insane

How is Honduras number 15? Honduras highest killing rate for the year 2014. The rate is 80.57! That's a high amount. I would stay far away from the Honduras to keep my life safe!

20 El Salvador El Salvador, officially the Republic of El Salvador, is the smallest and the most densely populated country in Central America.

My mother has visited in this birth country of hers 5 years ago because of her ill mother. I would like to go for the sake of my pride in one's nationality, but unfortunately, I can't because I believe that it's still dangerous. I'm just paranoid.

There is ongoing war in El Salvador between the government and gangs and a place where even kids will kill for just $20. It should be in the top 20.

It's pretty bad over there considering my family is from there it's very dangerous they kill people and sell their organs and gangs have taken over smh

Fanatic football country! that is good and bad! I am giving you the advice to don't go here!

21 Italy Italy, in italian Repubblica Italiana, is a unitary parliamentary republic in Europe. ...read more.

I worked in all Europe and I can assure you that the most dangerous country in Europe and one of the most in the whole world is Italy.

No road safety, if you have a car crash you are always responsible even if you've been severely injured. I know the case of a German little girl of 4 years old killed by a truck along a road, people around have accused the little girl, I remember her father completely destroyed; The trucker was drunk and phoning during the terrible impact.

This can resume how everything could happen there if you trust Italians, never trust those cowardly and liar people.

We'll for sure never return back in that awful country, people are looking at you in a suspicious way, they drive so fast and phoning at the same time in the middle of the road, car crash risky at each turn, roads are so destroyed that the speed limits are lower than normal, hotels are expensive and collapsing with arrogant people ready to steal all your savings, the food is just ok no more and always the same, beaches are crowded, noisy and full of garbage like all roads, trails, woods.. And if you have an accident try to be repatriated back home, because hospitals are far to be at the European standards as expected and are extremely expensive, when they should be free as usual. Italian men are extremely unpleasant with women, always believing they are the most handsome, which is by far not the case.

Don't go there, we spent our last holidays, it's a real danger on the roads, in small cities, everyone suspicious, be careful on what you eat, keep your money in secure place where you visit touristic places, don't go in suburbs, especially around Napoli (extremely dangerous), Pisa, Roma, Milan... Avoid the North people are arrogant, never trust them, in South people are more friendly, especially in Sicily, but avoid hospital, keep calm on the roads.. Or better don't go there, the scenery is not the top and beaches are crowded and absolutely too much dirty.

The problems in Italy are not coming from poor migrants, as Italian people tend to convince you, or from gangs from other countries like in other parts of Europe.
Not at all problems in Italy are due to part of Italians themselves and for the rest they just say nothing or worse they do agree.
There are plenty a really nice countries to visit, but not Italy.

22 Central African Republic

Are you sure that Italy and South Africa (which are just countries with high crime rate) are more dangerous than a country with a civil, famine and Ebola?

CAR is a mess. Tensions are high, lots of unrest and war could happen at literally any second. How often do you hear about a government advising you not to visit their country? How often do you see an airport as a refugee camp?

Why wasn't this added before I added it? The country's own government advises you not to go there! How often do you hear about something like that?

THE poorest country in the world.

23 Nigeria Nigeria, an African country on the Gulf of Guinea, has many natural landmarks and wildlife reserves. Protected areas such as Cross River National Park and Yankari National Park have waterfalls, dense rainforest, savanna, and rare primate habitats. One of the most recognizable sites is Zuma Rock, a 725m-tall ...read more.

Nigeria is a failed country. Crime, terrorism, diseases, corruption, every bad thing you can think of; Nigeria has them all. People lie that Nigeria is a beautiful rich country but in reality Nigeria is a poor underdeveloped country whose people are starving and suffering. Nigeria is as impoverished as Somalia.

This DEVIL country produces self-hating, rude, aggressive, greedy, racist, homophobic and Christian-pretending rats. They export scams, violence, AIDs/HIV, drug operations, drug mules, terrorism, sadistic rituals and too many children around the world.

Nigerian migrants transform any stable countries into unstable countries by undermining natives with race-hustling, playing the 'race card' to get free entitlement, breeding too many children like rats and creating violent crime.

They deserve to be run by a self-serving corrupt bureaucratic government and BOKO HARAM.

They say "God Help Us". I say "God is helping them suffer for their sins".

Mostly a city in southern Nigeria should listen to this or everyone there will get a year or 2 or more in jail. No shooting. This is against the law, which means, that you should'nt be hurting or killing people. Or me.

A useless country where people so-called

Christians worship money. Nigeria is plague with Corruption, Bureaucracy, Terrorism, Genital Mutilation, witch craft practices, Bad Manners, Sexism, Rapists, Thieves, Mysoginy, Obnoxious Bitches, Overpopulation, and sending their own scum overseas to create further problems like Cyber Fraud and Drug Trafficking.

24 Colombia Colombia, officially the Republic of Colombia, is a country situated in the northwest of South America, bordered to the northwest by Panama; to the east by Venezuela and Brazil; to the south by Ecuador and Peru; and it shares maritime limits with Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, Jamaica, Dominican Republic ...read more.

Me as a Colombian living in the United States I can tell you guys that Colombia isn't as bad as it seems to be honest.
Of course there are killings every single day, but that happens in almost every country around the globe, sadly we are very famous because of Pablo Escobar and all the bad stuff he did. Colombia was a hellhole 20 years ago, now it's a little bit safer, even though crime is still present I really don't think Colombia deserves such a high place in this list.

No Colombia does tent have so many killings a day and we are taking care of our corruption problems and you just want to look bad anyway I think that we are not ranked this high

most kidnapping most dangerious 100 killings a day most dangerous cartels creaters of cocaine and other drugs rebels gurilla armed forces what more can you ask for?

The poverty rate in Colombia is pretty poor and the drug rate.They definitely should be poor.

25 Philippines The Philippines was established in March 16, 1521 and named in honor of a Spanish King whose name is King Philip of Spain II. It is located at Asia, specifically at Southeast Asia. The capital is Manila. 89% of the people there currently are native, while 11% of people there are foreigners.

If you don't believe that Philippines is dangerous, go to Tondo or Sulu. If you go to Tondo, you'll get scared straight with all the poor living there and the overall filth. If you go to Sulu or nearby provinces, you'll never leave because of the ISIS terrorists kidnapping anyone there.

ISIS in Mindanao. Crime and drugs everywhere. Manila is a dirty unsanitary city full of thieves. Considered as the global hub of child pornography. Yep, Philippines is definitely an unsafe country.

I became a crime victim on my latest visit to the Philippines when my pockets were picked in a church of all places! But actually the largest churches and pilgrimage churches in the country do present particular risks for tourists and visitors. First the crowds of beggars, street vendors and churchgoers in the streets around the church can provide cover for pickpockets. But more especially when you attend a mass and have to stand still for an hour or so, probably outside because of the crowds trying to attend, beware that pickpockets can be watching you, especially when the collection is being taken, and you put your hand into your trouser pocket which contains your money (or so it seems to them). After attending a Sunday mass at the Shrine of Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage in Antopolo, I walked into the side chapel containing the Black Nazarene figure, where I did feel someone brush against me but felt no more of it. But then I soon realised that my camera had disappeared from one ...more

The country itself has a stable government, great diversity, and nice and hospitable people (family values are everything to them) and everything but what makes it dangerous (and what's decimated the country in recent years) is the natural disasters. For example, Typhoon Haiyan, one of the strongest storms ever recorded, decimated the Philippines in 2013. Look up pictures.
