Libya ranked 7th most dangerous country in the world

Dakar, Senegal (PANA) - The Global Peace Index 2108, published by the Institute for Economics and Peace, has ranked Libya the 7th most dangerous country in the world.

The North African country is ranked 157 out of 163 countries in the new version of the report that considered crimes rates, violence, civil wars and economic effects on the countries as the main criteria of assessment.

The Global Pace Index indicated that Libya was remarkably the only country moving down so fast in the last decade from being among countries in the top half of the index to the bottom of it.

“Libya was among the countries in the top half in 2008; since then it has gone down,” the Institute for Economics and Peace said.

Libya was in the same rank (157) in 2017, while amazingly, Iceland managed to remain in number 1 “the most peaceful country in the world” for the 10th year running.

Syria was ranked 163; that is the most dangerous country in the world. Following Syria came Afghanistan, South Sudan, Iraq and Yemen, as well as Russia and North Korea.
