The world has made progress in every walk of life, making life luxurious, making leaps to the other conquering fatal diseases. But the irony lies in the fact that many countries across the world are still not safe to live in, as they are ravaged by war, terrorism and crime.
Here is the list of 10 most dangerous countries in the world to live in:
Venezuela, the country of beautiful beaches, deserves to be a tourist paradise, but it happens to be one of the most dangerous countries in the world, with crimes like murder and kidnapping scaring people to death.
9. Democratric Republic of Congo
Another highly volatile nation in the world is Democratic Republic of Congo, which is being devastated by a Civil War since 1996. The country, despite being rich in natural resources, suffers from extreme poverty and unsanitary living conditions, claiming more than 5 million lives since 1998. Most of these people died of malnutrition, diarrhea and malaria.
8. South Africa
The beautiful country of South Africa is also one of the most unsafe countries to live in because of high rates of crimes, such as murder and rape. Cape Town, in particular is not considered safe for women, with maximum cases of rapes taking place here.
The next country among the most dangerous ones in the world is Pakistan, which is facing multiple problems such as terrorism, crime, widespread corruption, conflict with India and poor human rights conditions. The country is not at all safe to live in, with bomb blasts and massacres ravaging it periodically.
Colombia is also considered as one of the most dangerous countries to live in, because it has a very high crime rate, with kidnappings, murders and drug trafficking being rampant all over the country and law and order in shambles.
Next among the most dangerous countries in the world comes Sudan, which has been facing internal conflicts and ethnic violence, since its independence in 2011. Thousands have been killed and many more rendered homeless in these nomadic conflicts.
This nation has been torn apart by decades of Civil War, which started in 1991 and continues to ravage the country, to an extent that it has ended the tourism industry of Somalia. The conflict keeps growing bigger and bigger with time, with rebel groups and armed terrorist organizations joining it over a period of time.
The Islamic nation of Afghanistan is plagued by constant fear of death to its innocent citizens, thousands of whom are dying in the ongoing war between the terrorist forces and NATO and allied armies. The devastating war started in the wake of 9/11 attacks as al-Qaeda terrorists used this country as their operational base.
The next name on the list of 10 most dangerous countries to live in is that of Iraq, which has been torn by war for years now, earlier attacked by other countries and now by internal terrorist forces. The country is plagues by several bomb blasts, which claim hundreds of lives on regular basis.
Syria is a small and beautiful country, but is presently regarded as the most dangerous country to live in, on account of being under the constant danger caused by the Civil War being carried out in the country, with the whole nation protesting against the government led by President Bashar al-Assad since 2011. Thousands of people have lost their lives in this war.
Russia, Brazil, North Korea, Burundi and United States are some other countries of the world, which are considered dangerous to live in.
