A city under siege. Citizens are crossing from Aleepo – Syria’s economic hub – to Turkey in exodus fashion, as protests between citizens and government has erupted into an all out civil war. After three years of food and fuel shortages, Syria has become unlivable. Since the new year, attacks continue to escalate killing citizens by the hundreds. Power and water is cut, trash piles up spreading disease. Over 100,000 civilians have fled the front lines of a genocidal regime, even risking a feared bridge targeted by snipers, to cross into Turkey.

For the third consecutive year, San Pedro Sula in Honduras is the murder capital of the world, where random criminal violence took the lives of 1,411 citizens last year in a city of 752,990. As a nation, Honduras averages 20 reported murders a day. Experts say Mexico’s offense against drug cartels and the U.S. deportation of criminal immigrants pushes the problem south and due to Honduras’ convenient location, most activity has come to centralize here.

10 MOST DANGEROUS CITIES IN THE WORLD 2014  | NEATBUZZ.COM | savealeppo, syria, aleppo

United Nations and American agents fear a risk of civil war in Afghanistan once American troops pull out of the country by the end of this year. With troops pulling out, Afghanistan is set to make decisions on their own – like a recent announcement to release 65 alleged Taliban fighters from jail despite objections. In 2013, Afghanistan saw an increase in woman protestors demanding their rights, but have since regressed – along with an increasing disregard for human rights in general. In lieu with such political turmoil and a history of terrorist extremists, an up-crease in suicide bombings in Kabul aren’t an if, but a when.

The high rises, cute vacation homes and international stores do a good job of masking what lies under the surface, as Acapulco is Mexico’s most dangerous city – even over border town Ciudad Juarez. Acapulco, once a luxurious sea port and tropical retreat, has fallen host to drug cartel wars over territory due to its strategic location along trade routes. In an attempt to defend the city’s money-making tourist areas, locals receive second-rate protection from gangs and public beaches continue to make great dumping grounds for spreading messages – beheadings are a favorite.

Coastal city Mogadishu has seen worse days, but it is far from safe for travel. All western nations still hold travel advisory warnings against all of Somalia, especially it’s capital of Mogadishu. While the city is beginning to gain a little footing in it’s fight for control, it’s steps are only minor with threats of kidnapping, terrorism and piracy still reigning high against westerners. Attacks are indiscriminate and often in crowded places and high-profiled events or areas frequented by foreigners.

Amongst the political in-fighting and lawlessness, Karachi has become especially famous for its motorbike riding assassins, known as “target killers”. For $700-$1000, these target killers will assassinate police, protesters, businessmen, political opponents and innocent citizens without question.

Crack cocaine markets are on the rise in Maceio and drives much of it’s crime. Very addicting, and a favorite of the impoverished, many of Maceio’s poor find themselves quickly in over their heads. Unable to pay back their debt they are then made example of by the cartels. This instills fear in the people and ensures the cartel holds higher control than that of the government. And with the world cup coming this summer many are worried that violence may rise, not just in Maceio, but all of Brazil.
