South Africa as dangerous as Iraq
A South African opposition politician has charged that the murder rate in South Africa, 43 per 100,000, is roughly equal to Iraq's. That's pretty bad. Iraq is a country at war with itself and South Africa claims to be a developed nation. Of course, there are still a lot of unmarked mass grave to be found in Iraq, which could put that country back in the lead as the world's most dangerous place.
