Our consultant in Brazil sends us this update on the security situation in Brazil, in particular in Manaus.

Latin America holds the undesirable distinction of having the most cities on the Mexico Citizens Council for Public Security's annual ranking of the world's most violent cities.

Of the 50 cities on the list, 41 are in Latin America, including 21 in Brazil.

In 2016, Manaus is 23rd place in terms of homicides (47.87 homicides per 100,000 residents). In 2015, 34 homicides took place in just a weekend. In that time, 12 police officers were arrested, accused of participation in the killings. On average, the city registered 7 robberies inside local buses per day.
