According to this article: Study: 43 of the Most Dangerous Cities in the World Are in Latin America - Breitbart the Cities below are the top ten most dangerous cities in the world.



Mapped: Which countries have the highest murder rates? - Telegraph



Europe is the safest continent while the Americas is the most unsafe.
Here is the updated version 50 most violent cities in the world revealed | Metro News almost the same but with a few changes, like some Colombian cities falling off in favor of more Venezuelan and Northern Mexican cities. Also keep in mind that only one African country really has accurate reporting of their stats, I bet if more African countries tracked statistics all of those Latin American cities would get buried on the list

This too. Latin America has different definitions of cities and metro areas

Also there are many cities in Africa that don't have reputable statistics. Kinshasa for example is a city thought to have over 110 homicides per 100,000 but doesn't make the list because statistics aren't properly published or massaged in some African countries.
Colombia has made great strides this century and is now at its safest point since before the drug wars started, all the way back in the mid-70s. I also agree, Latin America is pretty much "middle class" by world standards when it comes to development and wealth, so they can keep statistics the way many African countries can't. I always read stories about some African cities where you cannot leave your house without having an entourage of guards around you, in Latin America this would be very rare. Sounds like that something that would only happen in Northern Mexico or Central America. South Africa is the most developed sub-Saharan country and its cities do not do really well on the whole crime scale, I can only imagine what some of the less developed countries in Africa are like

I believe it's Honduras, El Salvador, and Venezuela with Guatemala and South Africa getting "honourable" mention.

Probably correct. Durban and Johannesburg are bad, I can't even imagine Central and South America.

Well apparently Cape Town is worse than almost all of them, in South America only Northern Brazil and Venezuela is worse.

What is the cause for all the murders in African countries? I always thought they were just peaceful countries with people trying to get by with little crime.
