Countries With the Highest Murder Rates

14.7k views10 items
List of countries with highest murder rates. These countries below have the highest ratio of murders per population. As you can see, many of these violent countries are located in Central or South America. With this many murders happening in these countries, my guess is there's also a lot of unsolved murders as well. Hopefully the government in these countries will enforce higher security and protection for their people.
