Honduras Claims Unwanted Title Of World's Murder Capital

World  (tags: world, violence, politics, news, Honduras, society )

- 900 days ago -
Latin America is riddled with crime, and no place is more violent than Honduras. It has just 8 million people, but with as many as 20 people killed there every day, it now has the highest murder rate in the world.

OMG - what a terrible "Title" to hold, awfully scary...and I wanted to go there at some point. I am rethinking everything about going to South America, especially Central America. Sad, because it has so much beauty and unique animal life in the world.
