It is hard to imagine, but just a few years ago the world used to be a quite a peaceful place for its inhabitants. All this changed when a new wave of terror hit the global sphere in the form of 9/11 and the world became somewhat unsafe for people, regardless of their age, color, sex, or nationality. Owing to the fear of a terrorist attack, we are listing the top 5 most dangerous cities in the world.
Even though the US managed to finally kill Osama Bin laden and rid the world of extreme evil, it however, failed miserably in making Afghanistan a better, more peaceful place to be. Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan, tops our list as the most dangerous city in the world because of constant threats of attacks from the Taliban.
Just when the world breathed a sigh of relief – and three years after the US withdrew its troops from Iraq – the peace and security situation in the country has once again deteriorated. And this time, it’s even worse than when Al-Qaeda was carrying out its terrorist activities and attacks in Iraq. In what appears to be the worst crisis the country has ever seen, Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), now known as just IS after it declared the area captured by its fighters as a caliphate, is wreaking havoc on the citizens of this country. We have used Baghdad as only a metaphor, as the stronghold of this Genghis-khan-type terrorist organization is almost 30% of Iraq, but the organization regularly targets Baghdad and the innocent people living in the once-metropolitan city of Iraq.
The only other pirates that managed to gain name, fame, and fortune after the movie “Pirates of the Caribbean” are the Somali pirates. Besides making life miserable for the people travelling by sea, the land terrorists in Somalia have made sure that the people living in this country, especially its capital city Mogadishu, don’t have a moment of peace. The country has been continuously in a state of complete disarray with the United Nations (UN) and embassies of other countries have been pulling out from Somalia since the ’90s. The most notorious terrorist organization operating in this part of the world calls itself Al-Shahab, and is an offshoot of the dreaded Al-Qaeda.
Peshawar is the capital city of the province Khyber Pakhtunkhwa or KPK in short. The city has been constantly under terrorist attacks and threats of attacks by the Taliban and Al-Qaeda heretics. The law and order situation has gotten worse thanks to warlords, different tribes, and smugglers of weapons, drugs and other illegal commodities wanting to establish their hold on the frontier city of Pakistan. The threat of terrorist attacks range from suicide bombings to kidnappings to shootouts, which makes it one of the most dangerous cities to set foot in the world.
Ciudad Juarez, Mexico
Mexico is plagued by a different kind of terror – drug traffickers. To establish their stronghold and to keep Ciudad Juarez, Mexico under their tight control, these drug traffickers have taken violence and acts of violence to a new level. Mexico is haunted by many drug cartels such as the Juárez Cartel, which also goes by the name of Vicente Carrillo Fuentes Organization, Tijuana Cartel, Beltran-Leyva Organisation, Gulf Cartel, Los Zetas, and the Sinaloa Cartel. Exotic as their names might sound, each of these cartels is equally responsible for the state of law and order affairs in Mexico
