I have been very curious about searching the fact that why Latin American countries are not developed like other EU and North American countries since long but recently when i went through some reports on internet where the ranking of the world's most violent cities have been published on various websites, i got my answer. 

This report has been published by Mexico's Citizens' Council for Public Security and Criminal Justice

They have prepared the list of top 50 cities and their data was based on the below points.

·         A full one-third of global homicides occur in Latin America even though according to United Nations data the region has just 8% of the world's population.

·         Drug trafficking, gang wars, political instability, corruption, and poverty combine to cause the region's elevated violence.

·         The council's ranking includes cities with a population of more than 300,000 and doesn't count deaths in combat zones or cities with unavailable data, so some dangerous cities might not be represented on the list.

I hope that my readers will find it interesting and may get the answer of same question which i have been thinking so long.

1. San Pedro Sula, Honduras had 171.20 homicides per 100,000 residents.

2. Caracas, Venezuela had 115.98 homicides per 100,000 residents.
