Moscow in Foreign Policy's top 5 murder capitals

The American Foreign Policy magazine has named the five most dangerous cities. Caracas tops the list of murder capitals with around 130 murders per 100,000 people. The actual murder rate may be much higher, because the numbers "omit prison-related murders as well as deaths that the state never gets around to properly 'categorizing.' The numbers also don't count those who died while 'resisting arrest,' suggesting that Caracas's cops-already known for their brutality against student protesters-might be cooking the books."
      Second on the list is South African Cape Town where the homicide rate is hat 62 per 100,000 people. Also on the list is New Orleans that has long been plagued with a high rate of violent crime and Port Moresby in Papua New Guinea which was recently named "Worst City" in an Economist Intelligence Unit survey.
      Moscow is fourth among the murder capitals. Its murder rate is nothing compared with that of Caracas or Cape Town, but the city still ranks way above other major European capitals. There has been a continued rise in extremist attacks and a high number of contract murders.
