Is Congo at war? I have read that Eastern Congo is one of the most dangerous regions in the world, even compared to Rwanda!

It's the world's most overlooked conflict zone. It's was the scene of the bloodiest war of the 21st century so far, and it's a very unstable and dangerous area.

I'm not exactly sure what the current situation is there. Either a shaky peace or sporadic violence.

But the US has a very large population. Having said that, its per capita violent crime rate is higher than those of most developed countries, although I wouldn't say it's the MOST violent country not at war. I would guess some sort of poorer, more corrupt country.

I'm surprised no one brought up the Indian Subcontinent or the Arab Middle East for women as a whole...

Huh? Unless if you're talking about southeast Anatolia then maybe you have a point. Turkey's larger cities such as Istanbul, Izmit, Antalya and Ankara are fairly liberal and relatively safe...

If you want the Middle East, try Saudi Arabia, Iran, Egypt, Palestine and Pakistan (although this place is in South Asia). Turkey is like Sweden compared to these.

They did take drastic steps, violent crime is at historic lows in the US. To take any further steps is met with resistance from rights groups (as it does start infringing on people's rights).

I disagree while Africa has high crime rates, the rates cannot compare to Latin American countries. South Africa is one of the most dangerous countries in Africa and is at an all time high for violence while certain African cities are dangerous I would argue most African countries are around Botswanas and Namibias murder rates (both countries record accurate statistics). Also things to consider is that in many African countries children make up half the populace and children tend not to be violent. Also tribal warfare etcetera, has next to no affect on murder rates compared to gang warfare. Look at the state statistics for South Africa, Botswana and Namibia which all have trustworthy statistics. Limpopo a predominantly rural state in SA records a murder rate of 15.7 in 2016. https://africacheck.org/factsheets/f...me-statistics/
This overall is more accurate for all of Africa. South Africa even with its developments is overrun with gangs and crime compared to most other African countries. I have many people who would rather stay in Nigeria than South Africa just because how violent it is. Their is only a few states in Nigeria that is likely as violent as the urban areas of SA. Lagos which keeps more accurate-ish stats recorder 249 murders in one year (that is likely the number of people killed with a body involved and doesn't include missing persons cases). But if you read on murders in Lagos it simply can't compasrento a place like South Africa just because true drug gang violence is nonexistent. Although their are plenty of cults/ritualized and the like that resemble gangs in structure. Because of this most African countries not including SA have much lower rates of violence than Latin America but higher than Europe/Asia.

TL;DR The average subsaharan murder rate is probably between Limpopo (15.7), Namibia (16.7) (take in mind murder rate in Namibia ranges from 7.6 to 39) or Botswana. Especially in rural areas, although for cities Kinshasa and Port Harcourt are exceptionally violent and not the norm and I have been too one of those cities several times and literally every city I have ever stepped into besides New Orleans seemed safer.

Here's an article concerning Europe : http://www.worldatlas.com/articles/m...in-europe.html


I must say I'm surprised that Naples didn't make it on the list . One would think it would be at the very top .
