Honduras named murder capital of the world

A violent death every 74 minutes has earned this small Central American country the dubious title.

Honduras has the highest rate of homicide in the world, four times higher than that of Mexico, according to the United Nations.

It is estimated that there is a violent death every 74 minutes in the small Central American country with a population of just eight million people.

Citizens have taken to arming themselves in self-defence, as some blame the growing number of criminals coming from abroad for the problem.
