Violent crime rates rise again in US

FBI figures suggest nationwide increase after six years of declines due to surge in law-breaking in large cities.

The number of violent crimes committed across the US has risen for the first time in six years.

FBI figures suggest the overall increase is due to a surge in law-breaking in larger cities, after six years of steady declines in crime.

Experts say it is too early to determine the exact reason for the phenomenon.
